Prostate Cancer

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with PC after Gastric Bypass surgery and elected to have the DaVinci Prostatectomy if so where there any complications? Thanks

Just a quick update on this, I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and had DaVinci Robotic Prostatectomy last week, the surgeon that did my Gastric Bypass came in before the Urologist and looked for any adhesions or scar tissue, he only found one small place of scar tissue clipped it and turned me over to the Urologist. If anyone has to deal with this make sure the surgeon that did your bypass or a surgeon that does by pass is included.

This might be relevant.  I had prostate cancer two years ago and had a Da Vinci prostatectomy.  I'm having RNY in February 2019, and I asked my surgeon whether the prostate surgery might present any problems.  She told me that the RNY procedure would be entirely above the area where the prostatectomy was done.  The downside is that I get a whole new set of scars.  :-)
