Got home late late night from out in Vegas where my wife was taking a nursing class. While there we went to see an exhibit called 'bodies' where they have specimens of the entire Human body in various modes of disection.

It was very interesting to me to see an actual prostate and where it is in the body. It gave me a new appreciation for the difficulty of what the surgeon faces to get to this organ!

It is so small and sets in a slightly different position then I had imagined from reading and researching before my Davinci Surgery.

If you ever get a change to see this exhibit I would recommend it! The human body is really amazing!

A few months after my Davinci, I sat in on a demo of the Davinci robot machine. I actually got to sit at the machine and with the "manipulator" and attemped to pick up objects such as rings, coins, etc. Wow....was I shakey! Those docs earn their money.

Cheers,
George

Thought you rode off into the sunset on your Harley;-)
We are coming up on our 1st Davinci anniversary next month.
As you might know, I came out of it with a .3 psa that went to .7
before I opted for radiation. I came out of that back to .3...with another test in 3 days.
All of the above has been a heavy blow on my sex life.....but at age 66 I am thankful for what WAS. Still having fun seeing the grandkids, making music, playing tennis & traveling.

Glad to hear your hanging on zero and making those harleys hum. And...........blue Hawaii.

Yes I remember your numbers were up and you were still thinking about radiation...glad to see you are still fighting the good fight. I am working like a dog, trying to figure a way to retire early, while I am still ahead of this. Sex life sucks, scar tissue has made erections very painful. Will see the Dr May 20, our one year anniv..lol...still traveling tho. Not ready to sit down to a life of shuffle board....not yet...lol
