The GPS found the place itself spot on however the way the Navi took us was a nightmare for us.

I parked in a forbidden place because there was no where else to park a long vehicle.

The hospital is a gigantic place, but we stopped close to the main entrance where Hans had to report. 

 

He had blood and urine samples taken, also saw the surgeon who did an ultra sound through the unmentionable entrance and announced the prostate was Schön Gross./ nice and big.

He also saw the anaesthetist, in all it took almost 5 hours. Of course all this meant he had to walk miles from one station or Haus as they are called, to another, thank goodness his legs worked well yesterday. So almost all the pre-op preparation was done.

I stayed at the van with Motley who never wants to go to Berlin again.

The plan is Hans goes into hospital on the 4th of March and stays for 5 days, I will not be visiting him [strong-no-smiley-emoticon]

On the 1st of March he has to go to his normal urologist to be checked for infections, they did ask him to go back to the hospital for that and he said “no way”, so it´s arranged he goes to his usual urologist.

I expect if there is an infection it will tell them which antibiotic to give him before the op, I assume intravenously. 

 While I was waiting in the Navajo a man slapped a ticket under the windscreen wiper, I rushed out and asked what it was, to cut a long story short after I explained there was nowhere else for a long vehicle and I thought in this corner I wasn’t causing an obstruction, we had driven for nearly 3 hours and I had no idea where I could park other than there he said I could stay. Parking cost 9€.

This was the worst day out we have had since arriving in Germany in 2005.

I will never rely on a Navi again, it took us through Berlin and the journey took 2hrs 15 mins of really stressful driving.

Came home via motorways, many more Km. but took less than 2 hours.

I'm sorry you had such a stressful day, Milly, but it sounds like it was worthwhile in that Hans can see the way forward to a better life.

I hope you both managed to get some sleep last night.

I think it will take a couple of days to calm down, neither of us are city people, the last time I went into London was by train so traffic wasn't an issue, but Berlin I am sure is worse than London.
Lovely day, praps take Motley for a walk by the river in a while.

This is the operation Hans is going to have, it is the most up to date prostate op.

Hells teeth. I don't like the idea of someone stuffing a camera up my willy. I don't think the hole is big enough.

Sounds like Hans will recover from this version of the op much quicker. Wishing you both all the best with it. So hard to keep life ‘normal’.

You understood all of that?

For Hans there is no choice, the alternative, going through the abdomen, he cannot have because of his blood condition. This is the most up to date and is only performed at specialist hospitals, mostly for men with ginormous prostates.
