I have decided to proceed with robotic radical prostatectomy and will have surgery on July 27. Although I am sometimes anxious about the recovery period in the first few weeks following the surgery (and beyond), I'm ready to move on with this next phase. My wife and I had a nice vacation planned to Maine and the NY/Adirondacks three and a half weeks after surgery, but I am inclined to think we will cancel. We originally scheduled this before my diagnosis. Side effects, healing and wanting to be close to my health providers seems to negate air/car travel that soon. Has anyone traveled that quickly? I realize that everyone's surgery and healing time is unique and will heed my surgeon's advice. PSA 4.56, Gleason 3+3=6, stage T1c, age 60.
