Correction: I meant a COLONOSCOPY NOT COLOSTOMY. Sorry about that.

Gene,

The results are great and it must be a relief for the time being. The weather in Phoenix continues to be warm. Matter of fact, I see a lot of people driving with their cars' air conditioning on, what pussies. In any event, looking forward to seeing you and Ginger on the 30th. You are staying at a great place and it is close to Fashion Square with 130+ shops, Nordstrom and all the other high end types. Ginger will probably want to spend at least a day there.

By the way,did you ask your doctor about a colostomy? Mine was several weeks ago and it came up clean, my endoscopy showed a gastritis sore in my stomach and I'm taking anti-biotics for it. I was sweating the colostomy since my colon and GI tract were the the only places we hadn't looked to see if any cancer had spread. The gastritis doesn't bother me, but, hopefully, the pills will get rid of the problem.

Again, I am glad to hear your great results. Have a safe flight to Phoenix.

Regards,

Peter

Yes Dale, I agree, women are use to unveiling themselves much more than men since we are the childbearers. So its interesting to watch when this happens to your husband. And most aren't so inclined to talk about the sex issue as alot of people are more private about the subject. And there is alot to be said for that, but hopefully we more vocal ones help the less vocal by spilling are guts to get to the bottom of the isses. I hope it helps one and all.
And Julie, yes I watched everything after surgery, but it seems different in a office call setting, I didn't expect it, so I stayed outside and looked at Genes scans which were on the wall outside the door, got a good look at his kidneys etc...interesting!Ginger

Congratulations on the good news from Gene's checkup. I hope the news continues to be good. My sister just passed her 5 year CT scan after having her kidney removal due to cancer.
I'm with you on stepping out of the room when they bring out the catheter. Then I asked myself why when I watched the urologist take out his stent the last time Dick had a stent.
