Prostate Cancer Radiation Therapies

What Prostate Cancer Survivors said about their Radiation Therapies.

to my back, ten treatments, now i need to self catherize and have a blood clot in my entire right leg
February 2003. Side Effects - ED, Tiredness, fatigue, hot flushes, Radiation burns to anus and buttocks, rectal leaking and short term memory loss.
NONE!!
3 months of conformal radiation at Tufts New England The radiation caused the bladder cancer and much irritation
41 sessions to pelvis area and prostate, using Orbit Arc, some side effects; dizziness, burns, medications helped ease the process
The 39 trip to Radiation treatments were pretty anticlimactic. Thank god my job worked with me and let me leave early each day. Can't imagine if they didn't worked with me. I was lucky there! Never had any pain from the treatment and very little if any side affects. They is nothing to be worried about in this treatment as far as I'm concerned.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, 36 treatments, 2011. Immediate side effect: permanent loss of my pubic hair. Do not gloss over seemingly trivial changes in appearance. How we look after treatment – the size of our genitals, the presence of pubic hair – has been part of a male's self-image since puberty.
None. Had surgery not worked I would have been put on radiotherapy but thankfully it was not needed.
