My husband went in on a Wednesday for an open radical and was more than ready to come home the following Saturday. I'm sure there are a lot of variables such as health, complications, type of procedure, etc., that come into play so its probably not the same for everyone.
Husband diagnosed May 2006 at age 50. RRP performed 13 July 06.
PSA 5.7, Gleason 3+4=7, Staged T2C, Cancer confined to prostate.
His father diagnosed at age 62 and is currently a 13 year survivor!
