bladder control surgery

This West Yorkshire hospital now has a robot doing cancer surgery

The prospect of going under the knife with a robot holding the surgeon's blade may be something you've never considered.

But if you're a cancer patient at Pinderfields hospital that is now a reality.

The Wakefield hospital recently took delivery of a brand new, state of the art, da Vinci X Robot.

The new member of staff is a bit more advanced than WALL.E, who could pick up trash, or R2D2 who could unlock doors and project messages.

The da Vinci X is capable of making highly accurate incisions and perfectly stitching up wounds.

But don't worry, the robot isn't working alone.  Everything it does is guided by a qualified surgeon in the room.

It is to be put to work expanding the surgical department's capacity to provide keyhole specialist surgery for complex, life threatening conditions.

Pioneered by the Mid Yorkshire Hospital’s Urology team, the robot will initially be used for patients with cancer.

You should be worried if it continues for longer than a day. At this point, he is probably still quite groggy from the anesthetic and is still coming out of it. In addition, he was probably given IV fluids during the surgery, which will make him need


call the vet now. he shouldn't be doing that. maybe the vet did more than neuter him.

Anyone had the surgery for bladder control?

Has anyone had the surgery for bladder control. I can't do exercise especially running because i leak embarassingly. How long does the surgery take to recuperate from?


First of all you need to see your Doctor and he will try a medicine that might help and if not then surgery is the next option. I did have my bladder tied up and it took me about 6 weeks to completely recover. My Doctor told me that there was no guarantee
