Hi,

The preservation of urinary continence and erectile dysfunction tend to vary depending on the series. Robot assisted tends to follow laparoscopic outcomes.  One review (on laparoscopic surgery) of 100 patients in 2002 reported a 90% preservation of continence and 60 to 80% (depending on patient age, the younger the better) erectile function preservation at one year after surgery. A month after surgery 50 to 60% of patients would have recovered urinary and erectile functionality (rough estimate of recovery time).
