Hi Tex and welcome to the group! One word of advice (learned the hard way myself) . . if you re-post this as a New Topic you will for sure receive way more exposure and replies as the topic will catch everyone's eyes. Right now you are under Dread's topic of Home from DaVinci and not doing your own situtation the justice it deserves. If it were me, I'd re-post under New Topic. Good Luck.
As for your concerns, my husband was diagnosed in May and due to surgery waiting lines wasn't operated on until September. At one time the wait was till November and the doctor wasn't concerned . . . .
What is your PSA???? This too will help in determining the appropriate wait time.
Regarding pregnancy, your wife would have to be pregnant before surgery . . . everyone's return to intercourse after the procedure is different for sure, and dependant upon nerve sparing, but my understanding is that sterility is the norm after prostate surgery of any type.
Your doctor may allow for "watchful waiting" with frequent PSA tests, so you need to express the pregnancy concern to him.
Good luck with your journey, and please stay with us and keep us posted, we'll all be pulling for you!
