Well, let's see...
We've seen his original urologist (Brooks Jackson).
We saw second opinion urologist (Bradley Bell).
We saw the radiation oncologist.
We saw the director of urology at IU (Michal Koch).
Then we saw Dr. Scott in Greenwood, Indiana.

Hubby has chosen Drs. Scott and Hollensbe, primarily based on the fact that between the two of them they have done over 2000 DaVinci robotic prostatectomies.

Surgery is scheduled for 4/27.

Hubby is comfortable with his choice, so I am too!

I am also....since he is using the choice I took and feel very comfortable with on day 70 something post da Vinci.

And thanks for directing us to him - though we don't have results yet, I will know he is in good hands and whatever is, is what it is after surgery. We will know that we researched every avenue and made the best decision we could given our circumstances.

I already bought the extra large gym shorts, and got him some tearaway sweat pants for 'catheter week' (hopefully, just one week!)...

See ya in a couple weeks!! You will LOVE Thunder!!
