    Robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Check in at 6:00am march 18 surgery took about 3hrs. Check out from the hospital the 19 at 10:00 am. Unable to walk by myself for at least 3 days. In pain for at least a week. 11 days after surgery visit the doctor to remove cater. April 4 my doctor show me biopsy results which reflect stage 3 cancer level. To my surprise he now wants me to take radio therapy. maybe I am tired but I do not intend to go for 40 sessions.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
