It has been a while since I have been here.
Briefly...diagnosed with PC in Dec 09, 1 core hot out of 12 and a gleason 6. Had bone scan and all was great ...a cat scan and a small superficial tumor was discovered on my bladder. Had it removed in February and just checked again this week. So far, so good. Doc is confident that both of these cancers were caught early and predicts a very positive future. That said, I now have my robotic surgery set for May 4th and have a couple of questions. First: My surgery will be at 12 noon I am wondering what normal surgery time is and if ( for those who have had the divinci) you were mostly out of it that night due to pain meds? The second is... I believe my Doc is planning on keeping me overnight.. Is that the norm...did anyone go home without a hospital stay?
Thanks in advance..
