No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

I had the DaVinci RP Jan 24 2008 at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, California. I spent 2 nights there. The recovery has been easy. Never any pain. I jhad the drain tube removed 1 day after release, and the catheter removed 10 days after surgery. I have just completed my first week of work. I was out a total of 4 weeks. I was dry at night the firat night after the catheter was removed, and today, I have only used 2 pads. The whole surgery and recovery was far easier than what I had envisioned.
