Five reasons not to have a robotic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer.


when you are young pain is not having pleasure...when you are old pleasure is not having pain...

Patients often choose their treatment for prostate cancer not by which has the best cure of the cancer rather which treatment best blends cure with the risks. Prostate cancer differs in this regard  from most other cancers and why many prostate cancer men choose radiation. Dirty little secret: patients understand and full well know the complications associated with surgery, but often don’t comprehend the potential risks of radiation-both early and late. Paraphrased from “The Decision.”

The five reasons:

  1. You are cut on, you might have impotence and leak urine.
  2. You are cut on, you might have impotence and leak urine.
  3. You are cut on, you might have impotence and leak urine.
  4. You are cut on, you might have impotence and leak urine.
  5. You are cut on, you might have impotence and leak urine.

You could also put at the end of each sentence…”and still not be cured of prostate cancer.”

How do you like them apples!

  1. Realistically, in the hands of a good surgeon and good penile rehabilitation there is an excellent chance of recovery of both bladder control and erectile function.
    The severity of the problem can be seen at surgery, in other words it is in ‘the open!”
    In the long term radiation often continues to knaw away and create havoc with erectile function.
