I guess if you are running then you are okay but update me when you can. Hope you are all right.

I have a "very very large" prostate. I was told 9 years ago that it was cancerous, but I chose not to have surgery. Now a new procedure has come along that can shrink the prostate by cutting off the blood supply to it. They go through the aorta and place tiny beads at the prostate to block the blood.
Anyway, I was on the table for 5 1/2 hours! There's a period, post-surgery, when you are catheterized and then after that you're very sore. Last night was the first normal night of urination for me... ONE time, with little pain.
So there you have it.

I passed out twice reading your medical log. Can't believe you opened up like that. Glad there's a new procedure but hope I don't need it although I may need some sort of operation or transplant (a good brain is my #1 priority) I have 29 forms of cancer. 14 of which are unique to me.

So u r peeing and jogging again so hopefully the recovery goes well and speeds right along. Hopefully somewhere in that jibberish I said something right. If I didn't pretend I did.

How's the recovery going? Still cannot believe the surgery was so long! When was it?

Good luck. Retirement grows closer.
