Welcome to HW, and the other side. In another thread, he said:

Hello everyone,

I am new here. Had my prostate removed roboticly 1/6/10 My first time in a hospital got myself ready for the worse! I have to say I had no pain what so ever never took any pain pills at all. Just a little tenderness where they did the incisions to me that was just like healing from an average cut. The catheter was more of a pain in the neck than anything else. Be prepared for incontinence when the catheter is removed got mine out 12 days ago Jan 19th much improvement in that time.

Age: 43

Diagnosed 12/3/09

Biopsy 1 out of 14 samples

Gleason 3+3=6

P.S.A. 3.9

welcome woodyguy
 
Nice to see that you are coming along so well.  With your numbers you should do very well.  Thanks for dropping by.  Please keep us posted.  We like to hear good news!!

Age:  63 
Biopsy: May 09 showed 2 of 12 cores positive for prostate cancer -- 1 at 5% and 1 at 25%.  Cancer indicated as non aggressive.  Gleason Score: 3+3.
RRP on Oct 23/09 in London, Ontario.  Excellent surgeon. 
7 Weeks Post Op -  The fears I had about bad things about the operation and recovery did not materialise except of course ED!!.  Otherwise, everything went very smoothly.  Incontinence not a problem.  Wear a pad when out just in case. Pain was never a problem.
Pathology:  Unremarkable 
First followup PSA and Visit: Feb 07/10.
