so you're having prostate surgery

If you're facing prostate surgery, this book is the ultimate guide. It puts you firmly in the driver's seat, from deciding whether you actually need surgery, through the procedure itself, to the quickest routes to recovery. Surgery for both benign prostate enlargement and prostate cancer are covered in step-by-step detail, as are alternative treatments such as drug therapy. Real-life patient stories, extensive self-help sections, and detailed illustrations fully explain each procedure, and a quick-fix glossary and who's who of medical staff take the mystery out of medicine. Also included are a comprehensive directory to Internet and other resources, a guide to complementary therapies, and a diary to help you keep track of your treatment--and your recovery.
