Done I'm an ostomate

Done, I am now an ostomate. I am home with very little pain. I am walking but do tire quickly. Not much of an appetite, but try to eat in small snippets.

Prior to surgery my wife talked to surgeon about preserving the prostate nerves so we could hopefully have near normal sex going forward. He did but he cautioned us after surgery it cost him time and me blood. The loss of blood took me completely out for over 2 days. But, with 3 transfusions I finally felt a little alive on Monday.

I got the pathology report as i was checking out. I am now cancer free. Thanks for all the thoughts and well wishes. It's all about healing and living from here on out.

Hi KS, For some reason 'blogs' will not let you 'like' a reply. Only the blog itself can be 'liked'. If you post a topic in the forum, however, you can 'like' a response to you post. Terry
Hope you're still doing well!
Best of luck to you!
