16th Day of Cancer....

I can't believe that I skipped a day yesterday writing in this blog. Yesterday was a pretty stressful day but today was another level at times. I had my doctor appointment with my primary urologist this morning at 11:15. The visit was great. We went over what all I can expect after the surgery. There are a few things that I'm not looking forward to. One is having to take Viagra for awhile afterwards for penis rehab. I never thought in a million years I would have to have those words come out of my mouth. There will also be a period of incontinence that should pass within three months. I guess depends will become my friend. My doctor called me back tonight and further discussed everything with me. He is awesome! When I first began this blog, I promised to be honest about the process that I will be going through so this is what I am trying to do.

I spoke with my surgeon's assistant today and she said that the soonest that I could have my surgery would be June 5th. That didn't set well with me as I want this beast out ASAP! My surgeon called me tonight and said that he would set up a Saturday surgery for me with the top team in a quiet environment. He said that he does this for VIP patients. I was incredibly relieved and this only reassured me that I have chosen the best possible surgeon for my procedure. I am truly blessed by having these two people to help me in this scary time. My prayers have been answered in so many ways.
