Hello friends,  Since there have been so many questions about life immediately after radical prostatectomy, I thought I'd share below what I believe is an excellent web page discussing a variety of post-op issues and advice and a link about Kegels.  
 
I'd like to see you add anything other links to this topic that you believe would be helpful to our friends who have already chosen or who are considering surgery.  Of course, you'll want to compare any of this information with advice from your personal health care professionals.

Idaho, the post-surgery site is a great summary.  Mirrors the info packet provided by my MD, but in a much more concise manner.  Thanks for posting it.
