I don't want to usurp the moderators job, but I noticed a fellow Canadian making a first post in another thread and as he has a question I thought I'd copy and paste into a new thread. Buzzd said:
|Greetings men...I had robotic prostatectomy on 7/14 this summer and all went fairly well...Here I am some 15 weeks after surgery and still have fairly regular blood in my urine. Full urinary control but often quite urgent..no real sign of sexual function returning yet but.we'll see. I am 55 years old Post op gleason score 3/4. Post oppathology was very successful with all cancer contained to the prostate with no invasion of any other tissue or glands and all surgical margins were negative.
Does anyone else have the same or other continuious bleeding issues?
Any redsponse would be apreciated
