I'm glad your husband finally has a date for his prostate surgery debz64. Hopefully others who have had this surgery will reply soon to offer their advice but in the meantime I just wanted to let you know that we have a section on our website dedicated to prostate cancer, including information about treatment and recovery, that you can have a look at here

Do come back and let us know how your husband's surgery has gone when you get the chance.

Wishing you both all the best,
