Thanks to everyone that responded. Kegeling is my life and I am walking walking walking. My little voice screaming is quieter in no small part because of fine folks as yourself. I also am mentoring my dear friend who will be meeting my surgeon next week with his apprehension and that helps too. Thanks again for taking the time. It's a big help!
I totally understand what you are going through as I just went through a 3 month waiting period before my RP which was performed last week. It was dicey enough for me to contact my primary care Dr. late on a friday evening back in Dec. He gave me some of the best advice ever, in that I needed to focus on the three main things within my control: Eating, sleeping and staying hydrated. We discussed each of these separately and any issues with them were resolved immediatly (prescription for Ambien as I wasn't sleeping very good). I hope this advice will also assist you.
