Major good news

Went in for my catheter removal and pathology report:
- Cancer was contained to prostate (margins good) and only 10% in size.
- Removal of catheter was brief (about 1 second), slightly painful, but a hugely welcome relief.
- I have been dry so far today (12 hours after removal). I have felt the urge to go 3 or 4 times and easily made it to the bathroom without leak. When I did go, it was a firehose! (amazing how things open up with no prostate).
- No blood in urine at all.

I could not have had a better day. I'm grateful for catching this early, my surgeon's good work, daVinci, and your prayers and support!

Life is good.

What a great and welcome post. It is really good to hear about things that go good.

I am sure that you and your family must be rejoicing in the great news.

Praying for you that things continue on this path and only get better as every day passes.

Thanks guys. I really do feel like the luckiest man in the world. I know some have, and continue to struggle, and I really feel for you. So far, everything has turned out excellent for me so I hope that will encourage some of you that are considering or planning on surgery.

As is often said here, everyone is different, but prayers & support of friends and family, and kegals (before surgery) are the key in my opinion.

Bless you all.
