Hi, how did your husband do with radiation?
He did very well. It was exhausting of course as the cancer center is an hour away. I am grateful the doctors made the choices they did for him. The side effects were minimal, and his PSA plummeted in the first month and his most recent scan showed nothing but a giant prostrate.
I hope this shows that no one solution is the right one for everybody.
What is the doctor recommending?
PSMA PET Scan didn't show any cancer but psa's over the last year .20, .24, .24, biochemical recurrence. Radiation Oncologist suggests 40 IMRT, I'm guessing to the pelvis. Worried about side effects (bladder, bowels); What kind of radiation? Glad your husband did well. Nice to hear something positive. This is all new to me. Thanks for answering.
