Robotic Prostatectomy Surgery

I have always been a healthy guy so when I started to urinate blood after my weekly 3 mile run I was to say the least alarmed. Within 6 weeks I had PSA test, CT scan, bone scan and a prostate biopsy with the Gleason score of 8. My head is still spinning with the news of prostate cancer and still trying to sort things out in my head with my upcoming robotic-assisted surgery in less than 2 weeks. Not sure what to expect after the surgery, after reading some of the stories here it sounds like my life is going to change in a major way. I just hope I have some of the qualities of my life that I have enjoyed for the past 58 years.
