Diagnosed Oct 19, 64 yrs old, psa 6.1 Gleeson 7. I was fit healthy and positive.
Decided for robotic surgery, never been in hospital, or had operation ,anaesthetic before.
Had to wait till July 20 for surgery due to covid.
Surgery went well, catheter out after 10 days,medium incontinence to start with. Walking 3km after 3 days,running 3km after 6 weeks. Back to work late oct 20.
Hardly need a pad these days. Fit healthy, running,cycling etc.
If you decide on surgery, practice your pelvic floor exercises, and do them regularly, they really do help,and I continue post surgery. Get yourself physically fit. You dont need to run a marathon but make sure your positive in mindset and your body is ready. Again I found this really worked and it was valuable for me while waiting. It gave me a purpose and focus.
