Hi everyone, well today I got rid of the catheter & bag, had 3 tests and passed (peed) ok with very little retention, no problem with leaking in pad, in fact I have not leaked anything in the last 5 hours, I think this is due to the excellence of my surgeon, who I have been told "is the best".
He saw me at 12.30pm today, and told me not to worry about my post op pathology, as he was sure he got it all, then with a hearty handshake, said he will see me in 4 weeks for PSA.
So I am a happy man, and so I should be.
