Thread: Miriales of Modern Medicine

    Default Miriales of Modern Medicine

    I went in for my surgery Monday at about 10 AM, and was released from the hospital Tuesday before 11. Other than gas pains (nuclear level gas pains) I feel fine. Every once in a while I go in and look at my belly in the mirror (don't tell me I'm not brave!) to convince myself that someone actually poked a bunch of holes in me - really minimal discomfort.
    It is astounding to me that doctors could cut holes me, remove parts, patch me up, and send me home in 24 hours feeling no worse than I do. Absolutely astounding!

    Glad you made it through relatively unscathed.

    Thank you. The entire process should have been filmed as an example of what happens when everything goes right. The hospital staff were wonderful - other than an absolutely religious (St. Kaiser of Permanente?) dedication to not allowing me to sleep. They were friendly, cheerful, and, from what I could tell, professionally competent. If the food were a little better (and I could get an indulgence on the sleep deprivation) I would book my next vacation there.

    I'm also glad everything went well for you. A year and a half ago I had major shoulder surgery done arthroscopically, and today I can hardly find the scars.

    Yeah, I had the prostate removed. I had a lot of options - this looked the best. I am now anxiously awaiting news on what/how severe the side-effects are going to be.

    I am sorry you had to go through that & I wish you the best in the surgical recovery. Keep us posted as far as the continued prognosis goes.

    I don't know what it means to no longer have a prostate exactly BUT I would suggest Vitamin C IV drips to help the immune system & increase the antioxidant activity in the body as well as Glutathione, IP6 (inositol, found in Lecithin) & L-arginine supplementation. There are a few docs I know in SoCal that could help you with that if you wanted.
