Post Op Radiation therapy - More Questions
After 3 years at undetectable PSA values, now I find the numbers rising , so it looks like the doc will want to go the radiation therapy route soon.
I'm really concerned about 2 things: first, the side effects :incontinence (I have very little leakage now), ability to achieve an erection (I need the injections now to maintain it to function satisfactorily), will I be able to work during the treatments? How did you feel during the treatment period?
Secondly, It sounds tremendously expensive, with frequent CT scans and all. How expensive is it? (My insurance isn't the greatest). Since this is all happening at this time of year, I need to plan financially for all this to take place in the Spring.
Thanks for your thoughts.
