Well, today celebrates my 3rd week since released from the hospital from Robotic surgery. I'm still using two pads a day, one after my shower and one before going to bed. Leakage is still happening but not dramatically, only when I'm strained such as coughing, standing up, etc. Bladder doesn't seem to empty completely when I do urinate, meaning I have to go often, just like I did prior to surgery. Before, I was told my prostate was the reason for my bladder not emptying, but they can't say that today.
Still a little sore in the stomach area from the punctures, but the wounds are almost 90% healed and gone away. (other than the large one where they brought out the prostate).
Taking a viagra every other day and to my surprise, no headaches because of it. However, so far there's been no reaction to the little blue pill.
Next appointment with the Doc is Jan 22nd for a followup PSA test and general review.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
