I started Orgovyx 9 days before my first SBRT. At that point my T was already down from 517 to 27.

I tolerated SBRT with very few problems. I was a little tired after the first fraction but I think that was more "emotion based" rather than actual treatment based. I had no side effects during the 5 SBRT fractions. I had a Barrigel spacer placed. I had some scant blood and mucous during bowels movements for three days after my final treatment, but that totally resolved within 5 days....to the point I went on a two week SCUBA trip in Honduras 2 weeks after my final SBRT. The only side effect with Orgovyx is mild hot flashes...about two per night. I purposely lost 8 pounds prior to starting Org and have kept it off. I hit the gym hard three days a week for two hours at a crack, I walk 18 holes of golf twice a week, I am watching calories, sugar and portions. My latest blood test did show a ____slight____increase in glucose and LDL. Those are known possible side effects of Org.
I am telling you Brother....if you get along as well as I have with SBRT and Org then we BOTH are truly, truly fortunate.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Stay Strong Brother.
