    The takeaway message to those who may have a similar future finding is:

    Pay no attention to those infiltrating Foamy Histiocytes!!!

    Had post-op appointment with the surgeon today. Healing very well and can return to normal activity level, but no heavy lifting for two more weeks.

    Since with adverse pathology, everyone considers getting a second opinion, so I decided that with this amazingly good pathology that I would ask whether or not there were other possible interpretations of the slides. He responded that the pathologist was very sure of her interpretation that there was no cancer present. Sipping a celebratory beverage on the front porch as I author this.

    Finished third ART session today -- only 34 more to go! Had final/second three month Eligard injection a little over a week ago and can't wait for T to come back in hopefully about six months.

    My belief in the power of 5mg daily tadalafil (generic cialis) is -- ahem -- slowly firming up. Seems like a miracle since it's over seven months post-op. One again the chorus to "Walking On Sunshine" has happily become stuck in my head!
