Robotic Prostatectomy

Good afternoon, I had Robotic Prostatectomy surgery on 12/27/21. I have had off and on pain and pressure in the rectum since the procedure. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this and how long did it last? It can be quite painful at times. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

  1. Hi . Sorry you are experiencing this pain. Has your doctor had any feedback on this postoperative symptom? I can't personally speak to this issue, but I can tell you that perineal pain (the area between the scrotum and the rectum) is not uncommon. In addition, there is often rectal pressure from bloating which can cause pain and many notice rectal pain when sitting (don't know if this is when you are experiencing it). Of course, only a doctor can provide the proper diagnostics. Hopefully others will chime in with their experiences. Hope you get some answers and relief soon. Best, Richard (ProstateCancer.net Team)
