Well the day will arrive tomorrow. It has been a strange week of anxiety mixed with looking forward to getting it all over with. Been important to keep things in perspective- the prognosis from this procedure is excellent with my stage of prostate cancer. The potential discomfort of the procedure (which is currently imagined not real) is a small price to pay for peace of mind and extended good health and a long happy retirement.
So I hope I sleep reasonably well tonight with the trepidation in check. I have to be at the ward for 7.30 am tomorrow so it is going to be an early start- no going back now, but I am sure this is the right decision. Will update you as soon as I can on how things have gone, and my experiences of the operation itself.
