yeah  Today is one week since I had the Di Venci procedure. Went back to the Urologist office and they removed Mr. Hang..no leaks so far. I will say that it takes a while to get things started, but I think we will hopefully have no problems. Still awaiting the path. report, will start calling every day so we know where we stand. For those awaiting having this done, the removeal of the foley cath. is nothing, I expected pain and was happy there is none!

Great news!! Finding we can hold our pee after the catheter comes out is indeed a big step in our recovery. The slow starts will improve with time. And you will experience a lot of different and new sensations while you are healing. It takes a while to be able to sort out the different signals. After a while you will get used to it and holding and going will be just like before surgery.

Good for you....
