radiation and hormone therapy after RP

Hi new here been following board for 3 months now since husband was diagnosed with PC. He had RP in June, at his 3 mo. checkup PSA was .57. Dr wants to do RT and HT now. He had nerve sparing and things are coming along well plus no problems at all with incontinence. Our question is with RT what effect will that have on the nerves saved? What about incontinence since there has not been a problem there? And adding both together? They want to do 8 weeks of RT and 6 to 9 months of HT. Can anyone share their experinces and how things have progressed? Thanks
