Hi well its over and Ben did well... 13 hours of surgery boy was it a long day yesterday.. but good news too Dr Gearhart was able to spare Bens prostrate and bladder. She went in threw both the front and rear and "very" slowly worked the tumors out... not sure if any nodes yet are positive and also she wasnt able to view or feel Bens liver so more test will have to be run to make sure no spreads to that area. Ben stomache from all the other surgery was amess.. of scar tissue and mesh. He is the talk of ICU cause of it all the nurse say that all they are hearing about is his mess.
