I'm not sure, but my urologist stated that the nerves were damaged that control the bladder's contracting capability and this happened during surgery. I imagine the injuries to the nerves and to the artery were due to the surgeon's lack of experience or lack of finesse with the robot. I didn't want this surgery, but was told by this group of surgeons that I had no choice, but that I had to have it in order to insure that the cancer was removed. I was very frightened as you can imagine.
