18 Month progress report after HoLAP prostate surgery
One of the indicators of prostate problems is having to get up at night and go to the bathroom. Frequent urination is something that many men learn to live with as they get older.
I have been working too many hours lately. I have been lucky to get 4, maybe 5, hours of sleep a night. With only 4 to 5 hours in bed it is not difficult to make it through the night without having to get up.
For the last several days I got a break at work. I was able to leave work early for several days in a row. I was even able to get more than 8 hours of sleep every night. That was a welcome change.
On the second morning I was in the bathroom taking care of business. I stood in front of the toilet and it just kept flowing. I then realized I had made it through the night without getting up to urinate. I remembered that i slept through the night the night before, too.
It was not that long ago when I was getting up a couple times a night to go to the bathroom. Before my HoLAP surgery 18 months ago, I never slept the whole night through. I don't miss those nights at all.
After almost 18 months after my prostate surgery, I am thankful for the benefits of the surgery.
PS: I am writing this at my Chevy dealer where I getting my oil changed in my car. I recently got an HTC Touch Pro 2 mobile phone. Rather than sit and watch the morning soaps, I wrote this blog. Isn't technology great!
