  1. Thanks all for sharing your comments. The length of stay may vary depending on where you are treated. Our care team is very effective at managing pain during and after surgery with excellent surgical technique. As such, we are the only hospital with a one-night stay following radical prostatectomy. Patients go home the next day, and we typically remove the catheter within 7-14 days following surgery. 

    Incontinence and erectile dysfunction rates vary from person to person. The impact is highly important and needs to be discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery.

    1. +Sunnybrook Hospital
      you are NOT the only hospital with a one night stay following radical prostatectomy. I had mine done (very successfully) at the University of VT medical center by Dr. Scott Perrapato

  2. Great information in your video, I am sure it will help ease men’s minds about this prostate procedure at your clinic.

  3. I had the surgery three days ago, and had minimal pain. Now, I have none and only feel tightness when I move in bed.

  4. Just diagnosed with prostate cancer at VA hospital, Have been exposed to agent orange in Vietnam back in 1966, unfortunately considered blue water sailor, must prove that I set boot on land, which I did……Here we go.

  5. For anyone going through this you might want to take a look at my video
    diary (so far up to 30 videos) on my fight with stage IV prostate
    cancer. So far, it’s been over five years since my operation and even
    though they found the cancer in my lymph nodes, I’m still here! My
    videos can be seen at:  https://www.youtube.com/user/prostatecancer7/videos
