My doctor tells me that I would need three to four months of hormone therapy to shrink my prostate to the point where I would be able to have a da Vinci (robotic) surgery. I was told this by a leading doctor in the field and I have no reason to disbelieve him, but I cannot find anything, anywhere about prostates being too large for a da Vinci procedure.
Anyone been told the same thing? Anywhere I might find more information?
I am 56, Gleason 6, T1c.
