Well, if there is a party ladies, remember what the urologists said about keeping your man's prostate health in good order.   I did celebrate with a dark chocolate orange/almond bar yesterday and felt no guilt about it at all.  :giggle

 :pray Thankful for good news!

BTW, DH was taking the max pain med for a month while everything was being done in preparation for pelvic-hip revision and a few weeks post op.  He stopped abruptly and has never experienced any addiction.  Maybe a couple of days were a little weird during withdrawal.  Maybe gradual withdrawal would have been wise, according to the dr.   But he said if DH had made it through 2 days ok, he had probably survived the worst part.  And so it was.  Oh, and he's 7 yrs post op and doing well.

Garnet:  Down to one a day at present.  Once I get these staples out, I can massage the painful area to speed up healing.  Good to hear about the meds.  Thanks.

Complacency - Haven't wet the bed for fifty years......until now.  I have man pads but decided I have progressed enough not to use em.  Happened during one of those rare real sleep episodes.  Lesson learned.  Haven't taken prescription pain meds in a few days.  Just Tylenol.  Saw my doc friend in the hallway when I had the staples and catheter removed.  He also made sure I know not to lift anything over ten pounds for the next month.  That's hard to do but I will comply.  Asked him about walking and he said yes but don't overdo it.  So I'm mall walking early morning and am up to 1.8 miles which is pushing it.  I won't go beyond that distance for a couple days.  Neighbor will cut the grass today.  I feel guilty.  One would think I'd be writing up a storm but  the muse is not with me yet.  Talked on the phone with a cancer survivor work acquaintance.  She says we must both walk in the next survivor walk and that I need to get the T-shirt.  That's about it.

Oh Chloe, rest assured I don't want to go through this part again so I'll be a good soldier and follow orders.  Trouble is the military trains you to think up ways to follow orders while doing what you want as well even though it is completely opposite the intent of the orders.  There is a supposed quote from an 1894 Army Officer's Manual that says "Enlisted men are stupid, but extremely cunning and sly, and bear considerable watching."  Being an old retired Master Sergeant, I'm proud to say that I resemble portions of that remark. I'll leave it up to individual readers to determine which words.   :lol

As a SNCO, I followed orders and did that which was expected of me but I was, ahem, not the traditional SNCO.  Example, it was not unusual for me to spontaneously start a "wave" like they do at sports arenas just prior to commander's call.  Envision commanders call as a mass meeting of all employees to hear the plant manager brief on upcoming policies, tasks, award medals and promotions, etc.  In other words, a stuffy meeting that had to be attended but you didn't have to like to attend it.  We would all wait in a big room for the old man (commander) to come in as someone called all personnel to attention and the formal business started.  I would start the wave while we were waiting.  The officer corps also had to attend and they would just shake their heads incredulously when I started up.  Mind you, they would be doing the wave as well.  So I can play the game.  I just like to add some of my own rules in between.  Right now, I can lift 25 pounds while sitting and not get into trouble simply by lifting a five pound bag five times.  That's where the "bear considerable watching" part of the quote comes in.   :)

Could be CL.  Hillbilly = hillbilly.  My mom used to say (of me) "you can dress him up but you can't take him anywhere."

Just wanted to share.  Heh, heh, heh.  Got my labs in today. PSA was as close to zero as they could measure....that confirms the surgeon got ALL the cancer. Some may (or may not) know that I have been diligently trying to lose weight and improve my diabetes numbers this past quarter. Got those results too: lost fifteen pounds and my all important HbA1c numbers now are comfortably in the range of those folks who aren't afflicted with that accursed disease. So my wife and I went out for a nice guilt-free lunch. Yay!   :partay

Yep, now the challenge is to do even better or at least maintain status quo.  After having undergone the process, I'm in the corner for anyone battling the Big C (it can be defeated).   :)
