    Hi Rick,

    This is my second comment to you after reading now your posts on penile implants and diapers. I really appreciate your direct and informative advice on dealing with these unpleasant aspects of prostrate cancer treatment. I appreciate your shame-busting, ignorance-removing and dignity-promoting attitude, and your desire to pass it on to the rest of us.
