and no more catheter,....... ahhhhh

Gleasons remained 6 (3+3), path report was that there was cancer in both sides of the prostate, which was an update as the biopsy samples only revealed on the rt side.

All in all, a decent day for me.

Waiting for the 6 week check up.

So many times the post op path goes up. I just had another lab read the slides and got upgraded on every sample to 4+3 3+4 and 3+4 in the three that contained cancer from all 3+3's on the first lab. The freaky part is that the first lab said first sample contained 50% 10% & 10% respectfully and the second lab...(trained by Bostwick himself) said 5% 10% & 10% volumes. 2nd lab uroligist Mike Koch stands by his labs results...insinuating that first lab must have made an error. Second lab has been contacted several times still has not returned a call back to me...I am kind getting pissed. If I may ask who did your di vinci? How has the pain been....whats the worst part so far...cath? I have mine on 12/29.

Thanks

I used Dr Tom Maatman in Grand Rapids MI. I have no complaints so far, other than why did this have to happen to me.

Pain has been almost non-existant !

Cath was the worst part, waiting for the day of removal appears to never get there. Crap for weather here in michigan made me home bound until the cath came out, I am looking forward to getting the dog some exercise now !

otherwise, a walk in the park.
