Six Months – Happy Independence Day!

Special Post

Wow. Hard to believe that it was six months ago today that I was being wheeled into surgery on a competitor’s stretcher!

Friday, I had an appointment with my personal physician to just follow up on all that’s happened in those six months. She was pleased with my progress and outcome and really had no significant concerns or suggestions for me.

In some ways, I was tempted to have her run a PSA test on me, but I’ll be patient and wait for the 4 August 2011 appointment and the results on 11 August. The surgeon really wanted to use the same lab to make sure that the process allowed for an apples-to-apples comparison with the February test results.

Another reason not to do it last Friday was insurance. I’m still fighting with the hospital and insurance company over the second stay in January, and the last thing I need is for them to question why I have two PSA tests within a month of each other. That would take until 2027 to resolve. 🙂

Finally, I added a new page to the blog, “Life After Prostatectomy.” It’s really intended for fellow prostate cancer patients, as it’s an open discussion of my experience with incontinence and sexual function. If you don’t want to know about that kind of thing, don’t read it! 🙂

So that’s it on this six-month anniversary. More on Thursday.
