This past week I passed my one year anniversary as a cancer survivor. It was last Valentine’s Day that I had a Radical Prostatectomy, having my prostate removed. At that point everything looked very positive that the cancer had been completely contained within the prostate and should be gone. Well, the good news is that as of last week there is no sign that the cancer had spread. This will continue to be an annual test just to be sure, but it was good to see.
Surgery is now six days away and today was the day scheduled to get all of the pre-op stuff done. Spent time with my surgeon as well as the admitting process at St. Joseph’s. My surgeon gave me a rundown on all of the things that would be taking place on the day of surgery as well as the following couple of weeks.
