Is there anyone out there who has had orthoscopic surgery for prostae cancer or knows someone who has? I would like to talk with anyone who has first hand experience with robotic prostate cancer.

Thank you for responding to my thread. I would like to know more about recovery time, nerve damage, post surgery PSA, ED, and incontinence. How long did it take to get back to 100%

Andrew I think we would all like to know the details of your experience. Your age and how you were diagnosed leading up to the biopsy and the biopsy results. Did you have the PCA3 test and any imaginging pre-op like 3 D Color Dopler or Rectail Ciol Mri?
Did you have any complications if so any of worst like Incontinence and E.D.? If so how they were resolved or if they were not?
Where you had the surgery and who was the surgeon? I hope you see this Andrew...thanks

The Da Vinci surgical system has been quite a controversy for the failed incidences. The ability of the surgeons who manipulated the machine was in question, stressing that proper training is needed in operating the Da Vinci robot. Check http://www.rotlaw.com/da-vinci-surgical-syste... to know more about the issue.
