    My father has prostate cancer, but he won't tell me anything about it.

    Decision Point

    My Mom called me last night (11/07/2012) and told me my father had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in July 2012. He goes in for surgery tomorrow, 11/09/2012. Other than assuming it's still localized and they are using a robot to cut out the cancer, I don't know anything else other than my Mom talked about Cialis. I was really angry to have her talk about their sex life with me last night, and now I can't decide whether to stay angry or be worried because they left out some other serious details. If they can cut it out during a couple hour operation using a robot with a weekend stay in the hospital, how serious is it?
