I leave for 5 minutes and look what happens....Please feel free to continue the rants..lol.
I haven't had a chance to post recently,been consumed with work,so I was pleasantly surprised to see,in my absence,the rather lively debate
that had sprung up following my own rather small efforts.
I go under the knife on the 2nd of April,2015.
I have initially taken 3 weeks off work,but with a proviso to increase this as I need.secretly hoping for about 3 months,lol.
I am,as stated fairly naive to the whole prostate debate and can only offer my very small inkling as to the best route for anyone to take.
I have put my trust and basically my prolonged life in the hands of my consultant,whom I,ve come to like a lot and consider what he tells me to be true.
He has said that were it him,he would take surgery,despite the possible/probable post op probs.At my age and considering localised cancer i agreed cos he,s a nice guy.
Only kidding....my options are the same as anyone's and each makes the best choice they can given the facts,personal circumstances etc..Mine is surgery,not that I,m looking forward to a catheter,and no fun in the sack,but she,s going to have to live with it,haha,
But that's half it as well,she,as in my better half,has her say as well,and after much ado about nothing came to the conclusion,that anything that gives me a fighting chance,is a fighting chance.
Prostate removal to me seems a no brainier,considering all factors,but as I said this is a completely personal choice and one each of us makes for themselves.
Looking forward to it to be honest,i want to get on with it now,no patience at all!,and am ready to begin phase 2.
Glad your all still here,and debating fiercely,wishing you all love and long life.
