Welcome to Healingwell. I had a similar experience with the lower back. When the daVinci system is used, your body is put into a position you likely are not used to when it is docked for surgery. You never know these things as we are put under general aesthesia for the procedure. Thus if it hurts when you are awake, that's not a surprise to our doctors. I don't believe it was your prostate that caused your pain ~ it's gone. Good luck Wednesday, and good luck in your recovery. There are helpful hints I push to the top as do other moderators. But the best help comes from the members here. If you can, please use the signature feature in the control panel. You can see how other members are doing so, and it helps other members understand your journey better as you post around...
