5 week Post Op

Well, I have my 5 week post op with my doctor tomorrow.  I am 67. Gleason 4+3=7.  RP; bladder neck reconstruction; 8 pelvic lymph nodes removed.  I know he is going to ask about the incontinence which I still have, but not like it was, getting better.  I know he will ask about the ED part.  My wife and I checked that out today and she told me "it is working". Laughing

    Done with First Post Op

    Well, all they wanted to do today was to talk to me.  They did take a urine sample and found under Urine Blood POL: Trace-Hemolyzed (ABN); Urine Leukocytes POL:  Trace (ABN).  I have gained 3 lbs since my surgery.  They said I need to hold off one more week before I start doing the things that I normally do and then ease into those things.  This will put me at 6 weeks of just kegling and walking.  They checked my incisions from the surgery, pretty much healed up.  Also checked to see if there were any signs of a hernia.  They asked about my incontinence.  In their opinion, I am making progress.  Maybe a little ahead for most folks my age.  They asked about the sexual function.  I said, my wife said "it is working."  So they are going to do my first PSA test in July.  I will let you folks know how that comes out.  In the meantime, in another week, my wife and I will prep our camper and head to the beach.  Thanks for all the words of encouragement and the wealth of information that is contributed to this site.
