On July 27, 2010, I had robotic Da-Vinci prostate surgery. Three weeks after, I have a small drip (leakage), from one of my incisions. The one just above the bellybutton. No having pain, but I actually feel better since it started to leak. I haven't spoken to my doctor about it, but I was just wondering if anyone else has gone through this. Also, how long before all this soreness ends?

You need to notify your doctor right away with this matter. Some leakage is normal, but this is 3 weeks after your surgery. I would put in a call right away if I were you.

Agreed with the above - three weeks after is a bit late for new leakage. Call the doc. Maybe best not to run, as you aren't up to that yet, but with all deliberate speed.

As to when do the pains go away - I still need my doughnut cushion almost 10 months after DaVinci. It is very unpredictable.

I wouldn't panic at all.. But, you need to at least call the doc's office.
