Hey folks, just passed the one year mark from my robot throwdown and all is going well. PSA just came in at 0.00, continent and mr happy is workin pretty good. The sky is blue, the door to the shop is wide open and racecars are being built. I am blessed and life is indeed good. All the best to those who are struggling and those just beginning this crazy path. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Tim

Dear T-Dog
 
Congratulations!
 
Where is Dr Milsten located? We are searching for a surgeon. Anyone have experience with Lee or Eun at Penn?
What about Walsh or Partin ?
Has anyone had their Robotic aborted for some reason?
What are acceptable complication rates?
