Well, my RP was on 3/20/2018; catheter out 3/29/2018, when I got up this morning the pad was dry.  I even let my wife check to make sure I was not dreaming.  This is a first for my journey.  Completely dry after a night.  I have been wearing the pad and jockey/boxer underwear during the day (except when I am outside cutting grass; chipping wood; getting the camper ready; etc.).  Feel pretty good about that.  Looks like my body is getting itself together (I had RP; bladder neck reconstruction, and 8 pelvic lymph nodes removed).  I will be 68 in September.  My pre-op RP PSA was 4.42 ng/ml.  My post op PSA test will be done in July and see the doctor 3 August.  I have not and will not let this "bandit" steal my joy.  Smile, I am.

    Congratulations

    Congratulation on the fact. Probably you can now get a little wet. How about a celebration with a crate of Budweiser's?

    Best wishes for more good news.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.  I am getting there.  How about a crate of Grolsch beer?

    Bud is loosing market share to the craft beers

    This calls for a celebration with something better than Budweiser!

    I don’t know if I would celebrate with beer but Apfelstrudel would be good for me.
