56 yrs old. Never been sick a day in my life. Diagnosed with prostate cancer July 09. Cancer found in 4 of 12 biopsy samples, all from the same area, left side of prostate. PSA 4.9. Gleason score ‘weak’ 6. MRI & Bone Scan came back clean. Urologist says I’m ‘lucky’ because it’s a slow growing, non-aggressive type of cancer. Davinci surgery scheduled with Dr. Colberg on Friday, 18-Sept, at Yale-New Haven Hospital in New Haven, CT. Have never had surgery before. Have not had pre-surgery physical yet. Can someone pls adv what I can really expect when I wake up from surgery, and on day +1, day +2, etc. Trying to keep the fear factor in check for the sake of my family. Thanks.
