Re: Salvage radiation after Hormone Therapy?

Hi Lionel: I had my radiation back in the spring of 2001. At that time there wasn't any Proton Beam. If you could get that treatment that is the way to go. I really didn't have any side effects until I started on the Hormone therapy a year and half ago. Now I have some incontinence. It comes a goes, some days I wear a pad but most of the time I can control it. I am sure it is the residual remains of the radiation and not the hormone treatment. All of these treatments are nasty but without trying were would we be.
I have been fighting this since 1995 and will continue to do so, so hang in there and think positive. Rich
