I will be gong into Laparoscopy surgery on Sept 30th for prostate cancer stage 2 with a T2 M0 N0 Gleason 7 status. I have a lot of concerns and stressful anxiety about the surgery and post-recovery.
Will I be a leaky faucet?
Spoke with the Dr. performing the surgery. His three objectives are to first remove the cancer, protect the bladder urinal areas, and care taken working on the nerves. It will be a three-hour surgery and I am a bit nervous.
Post-recovery side effects
I have never had a major surgery and this scares me a bit. So has anyone gone through this surgery and what is the post-recovery. Will there be any side affects or lasting damage to my nerves? Will I be fully recovered or have disabilities after? Will everything be functional or am I handicap? Will I be one hundred percent? How long is the recovery? Weeks, months? Lots of unknowns I am not aware of or is the surgeon not disclosing anything I should know about? Thank you for your time.
Stressed and concerned
Has anyone gone through a three-hour surgery? What is the recovery time? Will I be fully functional or a leaky faucet? Is there any side effects or disabilities after recovery? Still in stress and concerned. Thank you for your support.
