Cancer after an Enlarged Prostate Operation (TURP, GreenLight Laser, and etc.)

If you had an enlarged prostate surgery to open up your urinary flow and then later after the surgery found that you have prostate cancer the question is:  Can you still have your prostate remove via Da Vinci surgery?  Both the TURP and GreenLight Laser Surgeries remove a portion of the bladder.  Can the doctor reattach the urethra on the penis side to the portion of the bladder that remained after the prostate surgery previously performed.  
I hope you can follow what I am say here.  Does the previous prostate surgery complicate the task of reattaching the urethra?
  
I think you for you time Doctors and am very interested in you answers and comments.

Thank You,

Ron

Check with the Vattikuti Prostate Institute and Dr. Mani Menon.  You will find your answer, and it most likely will be a positive one.

you can also have HIFU, check into it at International HIFU.

I had it done over a year ago and no pain or side effects.
