    Radical prostatectomy today, not robotic because of my heart. Surgery was just short of 4 hours. I'm on enough painkiller that I REALLY feel good!

    My Urologist's specialty is nerve sparing surgery and he was assisted by his partner who is an Urologist.

    I don't know what awaits me but the first 5 hour haven't been bad.
    Thank God the hospital has WiFi. Thanks for all the prayers!
