    Hi again, I would like to know if anyone can comment on my situation. It has been over 5 weeks now since my last radiation treatment and I am still having abdominal issues and very painful rectal irritation especially when having a bowel movement. Does this soung familiar to anyone? My doctor says to be patient and it will pass. Thanks

      I am going to start radiation therapy in a few days and would like to know if anyone has any ideas for an outcome. I had a prostatectomy Sep 2017 and current ultra sensitive PSA is .015, I had two tumors with Gleason score's of 7 and 9. In addition, I had a positive margin. My recent PET scan was negative and I am in great health. I understand no one can predict the result, however, I am still interested in any input...

        I woud like to know if anyone has had radiation therapy using the IGRT method? I know there are others out there, but this is the one that my doctor recommends. Not sure if there is a specific treatment that has better results than any others.

            Current ultra sensitive PSA is .051. Before I see doctor in a few days, I'm asking for any advice on questions to ask him. He may recommend to begin radiation. I am now 9 months post radical prostatectomy and am in excellent health. Thanks

              It has been 9 months post-op and my PSA is doubling every 3 months, with the most current result at 0.04 ng/ml. Does anyone know the criteria for a doctor, before he recommends radiation therapy?

                    I had my first ultra sensitive PSA this week and so far is completly non detectable. Still having some incontinence issues but is improving. DNA shows my cancer is of average aggressiveness. So far so good. Hang in there.
