Hi, I had my surgery 6th of March so quite close to when you will have yours. I had no pain and no catheter after a week in hospital. The hard part for me is the incontinence and it does require an understanding wife to put up with. Apart from that the hardest thing is doing nothing which is hard to do if not used to it.
Wife wise some of it is a learning curve as they suddenly realize what you actually contribute to the smooth running of the household so that is good.
Apart from that all you need is a bit of love and understanding.
