Good news Army! I am 5 weeks out from surgery, and doing ok, fully continent, except for a few dribbles (which happened before surgery anyway) had a bit of a setback with wound, as I got impatient and did too much last week, and developed a slight opening along the stitch line, with some blood under the skin, so had to go back to the doc and have the blood removed with a fine needle (and got roasted by the Doc) so a warning to others, don't get impatient and strain yourself...the scar is healing ok now.
Sweating on the PSA, will know on 26th.
Thanks maldugs, I appreciate all the support and information that I got from all the folks at this forum. Hang in there and it will all come back. Has the wound healed? How are you feeling?
