Yeah we usually blame America's cultural exports for that kind of slip-up.

Give in. It'll make it go easier.

I could just as easily have written 'the twenty-second of January'. I made a carefully considered decision not to do so.

Thanks, Terrene.

Pre-op today. Not a pre-operative transexual, worse luck. A pre-op MOT. I'm hoping not to get fingered but you never know where the day will take you.

Right up the butt, and when it does so it's generally without warning or tenderness.

The magic day has arrived, and though it's six hours later in the distant British Isles and you may already have finished the procedure, I still wish you good luck. Here's hoping they get it all in a few cuts.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

I expect a full report, of course. Show me on the doll.

Thank you folks for your kind wishes.

Yeah, I'm okay. I've had worse surgery. Keyhole really makes such a difference. I have two very small and one small incision on my stomach which are healing nicely. I was discharged within 24 hours of being admitted. You can't argue with that, although I really can't recommend spending any kind of time in a Urology ward. My three roommates were two gents in their eighties and one in his sixties, all fitted with a catheter and bag, one of whom who needed to be reminded really quite regularly where he was and what the thing in his willy was for and to please stop screaming in pain and confusion every time he forgot, which was both frequent and loud during my one night there.

I still have no results from the biopsy, although my AFP count - some mystical number they use to tell whether or not you have cancer - should be halving every 5-7 days if the thing had been the source of the problem. So far they've dropped from 1419 to 589. Although we'd need to see a repeated drop and the biopsy results before coming to any conclusions.

To finish, you really have no idea how many bodily movements come through your central core until you take it out of the equation for a while. And you have no idea the relief the first erection brings when you've been operated on near your man-bits. :)

You have no idea about hearing of your first erection brings me relief.

Yeah, I was bored yesterday so I managed to put it to the test. So far so good. Such as it is.

Still no biopsy results. Say what you like about the NHS, but goodness me they're thorough.

AFP halved again today to 252. Need to see another few falls before I break out the champers, but it's encouraging.

I really am relieved that things are all working properly. Not so much the erection per se, but that it happens to work and you're otherwise alive does suggest that they didn't nick anything important.

I looked up the AFP tests and found that AFP is most frequently found in fetuses, so you may actually have been pregnant and NHS was trying to cover up something. I suspect an alien who didn't understand the concept of genders mistook you for a member of the species that is supposed to get pregnant.

DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT.
