Day 14

The results are in, and the catheter is OUT, yeaaaaaaaaaaa, yippee ya hoo!!!

Man I'll tell you this Prostate Cancer business is a lot of work it started with testing (Discovery). Then I spent months of doing research, gathering information, by use of the forum, then reading books, there were countless doctors visits with Oncologists, Surgeons, etc. then came more tests. The more educated I became about Prostate Cancer the more I knew I had to go through this, to come to my first decision.
