Robotic Prostate Surgery- An all-rounder guide!

In the weeks leading up to your robotic prostate surgery, you should do a few things in addition to eating well, staying physically active, and getting plenty of rest to ensure that you are as prepared as possible. The fact that you are in good hands is the most important thing to remember. You’ve picked a great hospital and a well-known robotic prostate surgeon to operate.

  • Medications

Some drugs, like blood thinners, prevent blood from clotting and coagulating, making bleeding more likely before and after surgery. Please stop taking the following medications 30 days before your surgery with your doctor’s permission:

  • Aspirin,
  • nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (like Motrin, Advil, Celebrex, and Arthrotec),
  • Medical Authorization

You will need to obtain prior medical authorization from your primary care physician because we need to ensure that you are in good enough condition for the procedure. We can recommend a primary care physician if you do not already have one. Also, look for one of the Los mejores hospitales para la cirugía robótica de próstata. for the best medical authorizations.

  • Pre-admission testing

The requirements for your pre-admission testing will be provided to you by your surgeon. You can talk to your internist or cardiologist, or we can do the tests at Mount Sinai. We need the test results seven days after surgery if you have this done by your doctor so that we can adequately prepare to meet your needs.

The most common tests are blood tests, urine tests, radiologic examinations, and electrocardiograms. We will send you an email containing a pre-admission testing direction sheet with a list of all required tests once you have scheduled your procedure. Because the surgery will be performed under general anesthesia, these tests are required.

  • Before surgery 

We recommend that you moderate physical activity and exercise to aid healing. Before surgery, you should continue moderate exercise if you exercise regularly. Start preparing your body by walking one to two miles daily if your lifestyle is more sedentary.

You will be admitted to “Prostate Bootcamp” following surgery, where you will be required to walk up to three miles per day. This workout will be much simpler for you if you already walk regularly. In addition, after surgery, “Prostate Bootcamp” requires eight to twelve glasses of water daily for one month.)

  • The Day Before Surgery

It is necessary to make specific dietary and bowel preparations the day before surgery.

Preparation for the bowel helps to clean the intestine and lowers the risk of infection. The day before the procedure, please complete the following bowel preparation:

Take one Fleet enema in the evening. Diet is essential. Consume one bottle (10 ounces) of magnesium citrate in the morning. Magnesium citrate is available at most pharmacies. Because preparing the bowels will result in dehydration throughout the day, ensure that you consume plenty of fluids. The best liquids are clear ones. After midnight, you should not eat or drink.

  • Donation of blood

Because there is little blood loss during surgery, we do not require you to donate your blood before surgery. If you want, we can make arrangements for you. You can only donate two units three to four weeks before the operation.

  • Sperm Banking

After the prostatectomy, you should have normal desire and orgasm. Whether you will have an erection is a little more challenging to answer because it is determined by several factors, such as the stage of your cancer and the strength of your erections before surgery.

ART surgery aims to get rid of cancer with the least amount of damage to the nerves that control erectile function. Most patients can get erections again, but it takes a long time and can take up to a year or more, with erections usually getting better over time.
