11 hours ago · SBRT vs. Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy in Prostate Cancer

Had my Eligard shot on 7/1/2020 and to date the only side-effect is being more tired than usual. I'm sure that since I said this the hot flashes will be starting tonight or tomorrow.

Well, will be traveling to Mayo over the Labor Day weekend, 2,200 miles one way, and will be starting the tests and implanting the markers into the prostate for aiming the SBRT machine. In addition DR's will be giving me an endoscopy for my Barrett's and also looking at my liver, believe it or not a liver can develop High blood pressure, go figure. All in all I'll be out there for 30 days. Wouldn't fly these days if it were a free flight.

@jackie95 @carnet Agree with Jackie95 for the most part. Yes to new Gastro MD,80 MG of PPI, I've been on for a few years, nothing to report re side effects of dose. Agree whole heartily re "Natural" remedies.

@bruto1 FYI, When I had my MRI 2 weeks ago @ Mayo, I was sedated so I didn't feel the insertion of anything.

@cmartin65 UCLA came out with a good study. They have been doing it since 12/2000. Don't know if posting a link is permitted, but here it is; https://www.uclahealth.org/radonc/prostate-cancer-sbrt

Well, first of all I want to thank each of you who responded to the question. My decision has been made and I will be going for the SBRT 5 treatment over 10 days at Mayo Rochester. Did a ton of reading, bothered the heck out of the 2 Drs, (radiation & Surgery) and praying. Will be starting the Hormone shot next month and will be going to Mayo in 3 months if all goes smoothly.
Thanks again
