I did my Da Vinci in may 10 Gleason 3+4. The nerves could only be spared on one side. Before this operation I was nervous as all are in this cases. But must say all went so fine with this operation. No bieffects - was dry from day one. Not even a drip. And no real problems with DE. If I take cialis and even with out it, it works almost normal. I cant complain anyway. A little bit late but in end of june I got the result of the pathology report and result was according to it that all cancer is gone. So after this spring of nervous times and thoughts about the worst things which could happen the surgen now tells me I am cured. And basically I feel fine as I did before the message about having prostate cander. Now back to work, back to golfing and back to normal life. Its amazing! I want to give hope to all you guys who recently got their message about having PC. Never loose hope! It can go well for you!

Best wishes!

Amen Rickard!
Hope is a valuable tool for fighting this disease. It is wonderful you are doing so well. I too have hope and faith on my side. And my golf game is back. I have only hit two rounds since my surgery in Feb. The first one was a disaster 122. I usually hang around the 90's. Last week on a tough troon I hit 97. I'll take it. Golfing next week.

Good stuff, Rickard. Your message of hope has made it across the pond and around the world.

Nice Going, Richard!

You're about three months ahead of me. I had my Da Vinci July 31.

12 days out of surgery, I'm getting a little drier each couple of days. Went to the movies last night with no problems (By the way "Bourne Ultimatum" is a good flick). Nice that you had no problems with continence all along.

I haven't even thought about the ED situation, my doctor said to start working on that this coming week.

Thanks for treating us with your hopeful thoughts!

Regards,

Great news Rickard. Glad things are going well for you. And by the way Idaho. We saw Bourne today. A great movie but the chase scene gave my wife motion sickness and threw up all the way home. It also gave me a whale of a headache. Pretty realistic !!!!!

Hi Mika-mvesr,

I know this is not a movie discussion site (sorry bluebird), but yes, those chase scenes were all real action. No green screen or animation. Pretty cool and yes can make one quezy! Matt Daman did most of his own stunts as well.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Back to our good friend, Richard...
