What Is The Recovery Time After Prostate Surgery?

Dr. Mark Gonzalgo answers the question: 'Recovery Time After Prostate Surgery?'

March 16, 2009 -- Question: What is the recovery time after prostate surgery?

Answer: With robotic prostatectomy, you will actually begin walking just a few hours following your surgery on the same day of your operation. Time to full recovery can be dependent upon a variety of factors including how active you were before your operation. Some patients can return to limited work or even play golf two to three weeks following their surgery.
