This is Tom D and Dale in Orlando.
My da Vinci surgery was Thursday, Sept 24 at ORMC in Orlando. My surgeon/urologist came in Saturday to release me.
He told me he already had the biopsy report back and that my cancer was contained with clear margins. Lymph notes clear, none removed nor needed to be. The cancer is gone!
Today I went in and they took out the staples and catheter. It was very little discomfort when they removed them.
I only took the pain pills Saturday, the day I left the hospital. I am now off of the Cipro also. I wore Depends to the office, because I knew I would be wearing them for a while. Now getting dry, is totally up to me and my body to achieve.
Go back soon to start the penile rehab and then later the first PSA
Thanks to all of you!
