Is this what they mean by post op?

1:35am, 28th November 2019, St Anthony’s Hospital, Surrey, England I’ve got a new cock! Oh, and I’m still alive. I spent three hours in theatre, all the nasty stuff is out and I’m on the road to recovery! I’m going to be sore in the morning, but right now I feel like a new man…  […]

Up and about

29th November 2019, St Anthony’s Hospital, Surrey, England Life experience.​ The last 24 hours has been a bit of a rollercoaster. When I woke up yesterday, I had 1.5 litres in my bladder. Apparently, that’s quite a lot of urine retention – so a nice nurse had to lube me up and put a catheter […]

Fuck, that hurt.

29th November 2019, St Anthony’s Hospital, Surrey, England Excruciating.​ I’m pretty helpless this week. Just to recap, I’ve had a radical surgery and some other bits cut out of my groin. Pablo has just been round to remove the main dressing for me, and he pain of removing it was similar to stubbing your big […]

Home time!

30th November 2019, St Anthony’s Hospital, Surrey, England ​It’s time to go home! At 40 I’m long past caring about how it looks, but I’m pretty proud of my weary old body this week. I’ve definitely taken a bit of a kicking. I have a couple of alterations, but above all, I live to fight […]

One week on…

7th December, Home. The story so far Let’s start with some good news.  Following my surgery, the wounds are healing beautifully, and importantly, my cock is magnificent. (I might be paraphrasing slightly). The prof is undoubtedly happy with my progress. He also spoke about parading me in front of his urology mates to show what […]

It’ll soon be christmas…

21st December 2019, Home. ​“I put almost ten inches inside you” “Ok prof, it’s bad enough as if is, I can really do without you showing off as well today.” On Wednesday, a month would have gone by since I had my first operation. Finally, this morning, I had my enormous drain removed. Apparently it […]

Another day, another scan.

17th February 2020, St Anthony’s Hospital, Surrey, England ​Another day, another hospital, another test… It was great to speak to the professor this morning, and he gave me the good news. The lymph nodes removed from my left groin a week ago were all negative! If any of the 11 nodes we removed showed signs […]

Be still, my Tooting heart.

28th February 2020, St George’s, University of London, Tooting, England. That’s another thing ticked off the bucket list I woke up at 4:48 this morning…  and that time will always stay with me as something quite remarkable happened.  A seismic, even life changing event you might say. Stefan, my new geriatric neighbour arrived during the […]

Follow up.

7th March, St Anthony’s hospital, Surrey, England. Drains up It’s Saturday, and I’m in Surrey for another follow up. After nearly 5 weeks with a drain in the left side of my groin, it’s time to take it out. This one was seriously smelly, probably something to do with the sepsis! I’m so happy to […]

Thank fuck that’s over.

2nd June 2020, Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, Surrey Is it the beginning of the end? Or the end of the beginning? My chemo is complete, and I have 5 radiotherapy sessions left in the “adjuvant therapy” phase.  I’ve had enough of the 160 mile round trips every day, and I’m glad they’re almost over. After […]
