I am now 10 months out from robotic at Addenbrookes in England, and have just had my latest blood test results which came back at less than 0.1. Next test is due in 6 months so I`m happy now for the summer. Incontinence is virtually cleared apart from the occassional drop usually after going for a pee, can also go all night without getting up, so back to pre op status. ED is a problem with only a very small response with stimulation, but the nurse who I spoke to get my results sugested I now seek medication for better erections. All the best from England to all members.
Diagnosed February 2009. Gleason 6, Psa 7.2, 12 core biopsy, and then Mri scan, which showed organ specific.
DaVinci at Addenbrookes, Cambridge, England 18th May 2009.  Nerves removed one side.
Catheter in for 8 days, no pain, no post op problems apart from an infection, cleared with antibiotics.
Some aching around the penis, which still occurs.
6 week psa 0.1, post op pathology all good, confirming pre op tests. Ed a problem, no treatment as yet.
Light ladies pad during the day, just to control a slight dampness and a Tena for  men pad at night for occassional leakage.
Awaiting 3 month consultation at the moment.
Sept 09 - still awaiting consultation. 99% dry during the day, tena pad at night just in case.
Sept 18th 09. PSA less than 0.1
Sept 29th follow up consultation at Addenbrookes. Staff happy with progress.
Nov 11th update. One small stress dribble in the last 2 months. Still some muscle stiffness in pelvic area.
