Thank you so much for sharing your experience relating to the marker and Spaceore placement. I am a person that has great fear of things like surgeriy… How are you now that your have completed your 39 EBRT? Did you have Proton Beam radiation?

I did not have "proton beam", I had "external beam". I am doing fine now 2mo. after finishing and my psa was <0.1 undetectable. I understand side effects may not occur for months or years after. My PC was detected last year and went on AS until Jan./2021 when it progressed to Gl 7,4+3 from Gl 6 3+3. I am also on final 2 months of ADT (Lupron) and I will certainly be glad to get off that. Doing good overall though.
I hope you are good with the decision you make, we are all different and react in different ways to treatments so good luck to you & hope you do well!
