GRiff, Thanks for the post. I am doing well. Other than not being able to get on my dirt bike (doctors orders) life is almost back to normal. I have been back to work for a month now. Last weekend I layed a ceramic floor in my basement so I am sore today but not from the surgery. I do most of my posting on the HW site lately. I am still using a pad during the day but I really dont know why. Im dry at night but I worry about having a leak at work with light colored slacks on. My next doc app is 9/28 for the 6 week checkup and I am guess a psa test. ED is coming along but not back to the old days yet but I am not worried about that. My path came back great, I will paste it below. A bonus of surgery for me is that I can pee like a teenager again, actually wakes my wife up at night. So far I have no complaints or regrets from my decision and am hopeful for a lifetime of zero's. How have you been doing?

The HW site moves much quicker. Seems like there are many more people with alot of quick responses. Im going in for my 7 week uro visit tomorrow and I really have not stressed over it at all. Hopefully that is a good thing. Talk to you later.

Griff, thanks for yor interest. I have finally come to realize there are no quick fixes for my problem. I am just settling in to endure the wait and wondering if I can even qualifiy for an AUS because of tissue problems. I am self cath 2x a day trying to keep scar tissue from growing back but I think I am gradually lossing this exercise though I have not missed a single time since starting Sept. 1. I just grin and bear it. Hows that for a pun?

I am on the chat a lot, but posting less here, really. Hot flashes are back, too, but not as intense or as many. Life goes on.
