Red face My ongoing nightmare:update

Well, it is game on. I am scheduled to have the reconstructive surgery - urethra reconstruction - and repair to the colon wall after my rather severe radiation ulceration issue. It has been over a year and a half. A very long journey. I have been doing all I can to get in the best of shape to maximize the odds for a successful income. Diet and exercise The doctor is giving me an 80 % chance.
I go in for surgery on May 7th.

If that works out then I can get the diverting colostomy reversed. I do believe I will end up facing urinary incontinence. So that be another issue to deal with.
