Don,
The depression is not to be overlooked. Gene has it once in awhile as well. I think it has to do with how your life has changed. Lucky to be alive but still the old person is gone forever, nothing is the same, from sex, to bowel problems, to having the deversion. Its alot to handle, I think the male ego is compremized, the day is not the same as your thoughts are with what you have left to do on a everyday basis..don't be discouraged, grab life by the tale and go for it. On top of everything else you may have business dealings going here and there, but remember how scared you were before sugery and the wonderful things they can do for us with bladder cancer. I know I don't spend money how I did before, just in case we may need it for more important things than what was important before, and be happy with that...we all take a hit with this surgery, emotionally, financially,
and it hurts from alot sides of the coin...do something that makes you laugh, thats the best medicine for us now!!!!!!Ginger

Great memeorys go with that. For me I am for now just glad to have a good piss. And not every 15 to 30 min. More like every 4 hours. Life is great and getting better. Although I have been somwwhat depressed for a few weeks, but seem beter that last couple days.I am in the midst of several personal and busines dicitions. The digestive thing is getting better. Don

Yeah, I admit it, it must have been a weak moment, we dated for 3 years on and off,
I suppose it was the lime green that thru me over the top..we were engaged, so I am off the hook, and I was 20,,, from what I understand I was the only one holding out, and I thought everyone else was too!!! OH wELL, MAYBE I WILL GET BROWNIE POINTS WHEN I MEET MY MAKER, THE RING HAD TO MAKE IT LEGIT!! THE GUILT IS TREMENDOUS!!! Yeah right.......Ginger

Don, That would be great, just like when Ginger and I parked on a dark road in the back of my 55 chevy,,,station wagon,lime green. Of course the drive-in was popular in those days, in the back seat..I must admit I had to wait til she got out of high school before I conquered. THOSE CATHOLIC GIRLS WERE TOUGH!!!AT LEASE THIS ONE!!!
I will be sure to post my experience,, Gene
