I was diagnosed with Prostae cancer in Feb 2010, a disease my father died from at 82 years old. I am 54 years old and  I was told the cancer was caught in a early stage. I went to Mt Sinai in New York City and saw Dr David Samadi “Chief of Robatics and Minimally invasive Suregy”. After reviewing my case he was confindent he could cure me. I had the surgery on April 27 2010, and four months later I don’t even think about the cancer anylonger. I am very happy with the results and my post surgery life is going very well.

Hi Joe,

Welcome and glad that you had such good results with your surgery. My husband had surgery almost 5 weeks ago and also feels very happy with his results. It's always good for pre-surgery guys to hear about men doing well-makes it a little less scary. Hope you'll stay around the forum and keep us up to date on your post surgery life.
