My husband just had da Vinci prostatectomy done yesterday. We are home today. He has had a terrible time with gas. It has been very painful and want to know if this is commom. Also he had to come home with stomach cath, as he was still draining a lot. The Dr. said this is not uncommom as he had to do extra work because of the shape of he prostate up against his bladder. Says everything went well and looks good. Will get path report next Friday.. We had Dr.Reymensy from Battle Creek Michigan. He has done over 300 and after talking to several Dr. seemed to be our best choice. Mike is 55 ,psa of 2.9 ,Gleason 6 with 2 out of 12 positive. One 3% and the other 20% on one side of prostate. Have been reading your posts and hope I can benefit from all of your wisdom. Hope soon I can close my eyes and really rest!!! Thanks for any information.
