So I am due for surgery tommorrow. I was hoping to get my procedure done at the Cleveland Clinic since it is the best facility near me. But I was not able to get it to work out its 3 1/2 hours away and had some travel issues and insurance blips.  I am pretty confident the local urologist, the first doctor seen will do well, after a couple more visits.   This has been the hardest decison I have ever had to make.  I will have a robotic procedure.  I was considering waiting until I was able to get Cleveland to work, but I dont want to keep waiting.  I am having faith things will be fine.  My most recent scan show no change in my mass it reads stable. The lymph node that the urologist stated he really didnt see on the first scan went down it now measures a possible 12mm. I hope thats a good sign. I have been really stress about trying to get thing to work at the Cleveland Clinic. I still have alot of anxiety. I am really impressed how well many in this group have handled this siuation.  Any last minute tips or things to bring or to look out for. Thank you all for the great advice and support.

Walk as much as you can  I walked around the house every hour  helped a lot.  Drink lots too.

I also went with a local group  my doc urologist is head/director of robotics at the local hospital. I was very happy with him.

Best wishes for a fast recovery. Hope your up and moving around quickly.

May you have successful surgery and uneventful recovery. First days or week are tough then you'll feel a little better every passing day.walk, drink water and don't pull, push or carry things for as long as your inner organs get healed. And notice outer organs heals sooner than inner organs. Learn how to breath properly to reduce pain. It's not easy procedure but we've all done it, so you'll get through thist for sure.

The important thing is to get the operation so you can start to recover and plan

The anxiety is horrific and hits us all 

The good news is it will soon be over.  You will have a few tough but manegable weeks but you will feel so much better knowing that the hard bit is done

Dont rush your recovery you will need every second of those 4 to 6 weeks for your body to heal

You need to focus on you now

 

Sendng you lots of thoughts and prayers

The mass should be the thing that you worry about, the surgery is a must have to save your :) Also, the risk even for the surgery is very low for a normal healthy person, robotic is even lower! Best wishes!
