  • AUS sugery no day at the neach

    Has the AUS sugery Wednesday, was rather shocked with the pain associated with this surgery and the swelling of the scrotum.

    I was prescribed more and stronger narcotics than the single port prostatectomy.

          Duck, I have admissions to that group set on auto pilot, so I don't actually see every new member join. Welcome to the group!

        Still haven't determined the cause of the failure with my AUS. Doc wants to scope things out. Getting the appt is a bear apparently.

        On the implant, I ended up with two 1/2 cuts, no egg plant, no pain.
