Diagnosed in August, 2017, after a biopsy revealed 2 cores had cancer. Urologist suggested watchful waiting, after lots of research I opted for robotic prostatectomy. Had procedure done in November, 2017. Dr. Bagrodia, UT Southwestern.
I'm 3 weeks out from surgery, no continence issues(thank the Lord!). Sexual function seems to be fine (thank the Lord). Still pretty sore on the inside, but I hear that's pretty normal. I would recommend the suprapubic catheter vs. the Foley. While neither is ideal, the sp was much less painful than the Foley.
No cancer spread to lymph nodes, so should be cancer free! Will have a PSA check in May of 2018, will update then.
So far, very satisfied with entire procedure.
Seven weeks after surgery and doing well. No leaking, all entry incisions are healed. Still a bit sore inside, but I understand that will take up to a full year before that is completely healed.
Still would recommend doing the robotic surgery.
