Re: Salvage radiation after Hormone Therapy?

Hi Flyfisher: I went through the same procedure. I had surgery then 39 EBR treatments now I am on hormone therapy. If you Oncologist thinks your cancer is in the bed where the prostate was then I think I would opt for the radiation. By chance if it is still there you could be cured. Hormone therapy isn't a cure it just keeps the cancer from growing by cutting off its food supply. Yes there are some side effects but it really depends on the Dr. and the equipment that they are using. All of the treatments have some sort of side effects, we just learn to live with them.
