This 1/2 year inconvience is a small price to pay for life.


As my uro said to me: It's an investment in your future.

My opinion is that it is well worth the investment!

Hox, It's too bad it took BC to get me to quit. After 33 years, I look back and think how stupid. My life was being run by if I had enough smokes to make it through the day. It is nice to taste things differntly again, let alone, I don't stink anymore. lol. I am very proud as well. It was quite an achievement for me too.

I am 9 months post op, and I feel great. I really started feeling OK after 2 months. Feeling good by 3 months, and feeling GREAT since the 5 month mark. I won't kid you, This is not a walk in the park. I remember saying about the 1-2 month point, that I felt like I was going nowhere fast. But once you get by the first couple months, LOOK OUT!! You will see improvement daily.

This 1/2 year inconvience is a small price to pay for life.

You will do just fine, Jim

Best of luck to you! As a family member, I just saw my father go through this on Feb. 1st! I'm so proud of him and I'm sure your family feels the same! Best discision of your life!

As everyone says, WALK WALK WALK! This was the hardest thing to get my dad to do, but when he did, he noticed a difference! Also, as Mike said, stregnthen your keegal muscles! My dad failed to do this as well and now he is paying for it! Especially since he is sore a little from surgery, it's a little harder to do them, so do them as much as you can now! :)

He was in the hospital for 11 days due to complications with illeus, but once he got liquids down and kept them down, they booted him out of there! :)
