This patient was offered many choices when he was diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer. When it came down to radiation or surgery, he chose to remove the cancer, as he didn't want toxins in his body or any side effects. Robotic surgery was the ideal solution for him as his main concerns were urinary and sexual function, as well as recovery and cure. Donald was convinced he did the right thing, as he saw no change in his sex life or urinary function. He used a catheter for only one week and only had minimal pain. He took pain killers for a short amount of time and recovered quickly with no side effects. He would advise any prostate cancer patients to get rid of cancer, as it's unpredictable and every case is different. Greg would definitely do the robotic surgery again but sooner.
