      My husband has just had his
      Prostrate removed with the Robot. We are home again now after he spent 2 days only in the Hospital. He is doing well the only complaint he has is from the colonoscopy bag which pains a little when he moves. He is taking no Meds and will have the bag removed next Wednesday. He will also get the Biopsy result then as well. We are praying they got it all.

      I am happy to hear that his procedure went well. I am hoping to only be in the hospital one day with my catheter removed after 5 days. My surgeon feels confident that he will be able to get all of the cancer and will try to spare the nerves as best he can. I haven't been told when I will get the pathology report ion the cancerous tissue, but maybe it will be the week after my surgery. I wish your husband and you well.
