This patient discusses his reasons for choosing Da Vinci surgery. He wanted treatment that totally eliminated cancer and he didn't want side effects. Da Vinci was the most technically exact procedure that got the disease out without side effects. He spoke to other people that got radiation treatment who had experienced tremendous fatigue. Greg did not want to experience that as he is very athletic and fit. He had a successful surgery, with minimal pain and recovery. He had a catheter for only 5 days, was walking 1-2 miles within a week and back to work within 2 weeks. He advises others who get diagnosed with prostate cancer to do research. Prostate cancer can be cured if caught early and removed, with minimal effect to sexual and urinary function.
