THE PATH TO RC

4 days 13 hours ago #53737 by Jack R
Lotech,

No matter how long the planning and anticipation of addressing a problem with surgery, the uneasiness and second thoughts always hit a day or so ahead.

"Maybe this will go away by itself, I try to convince my self. Or maybe there is a magic cure in (pick an exotic destination) that would be worth trying. Maybe I should cancel tomorrow's surgery."

Been there, thought that more than once - then it is time for the real consideration of the situation. All the reasonable non-invasive treatments have been tried; it is time to go ahead with the choice that we tried to avoid. Suddenly, it feels to good to have had, and always have, a back-up plan for the 'just in case'.

Embrace the changes and move on with your new normal life.

Best to you and all your support team,
Jack

I never even thought about my bladder, the last 2 years that's all I've thought about. still stinging from the biopsy yesterday, and a little scared about Thursday but will see you all on the other side and tell you how it went!

Lotech,

So nice to hear good news. You gotta go with the flow, so to speak, and it is sweet when it is going your way. Hoping for an easy recovery, but you already know that it will take some time and a lot of work. Keep us in the loo-p.

Best,
Jack
