My husband underwent prostectomy last May, lupron shots started in June and every 4 months thereafter. Radiation Started Dec 2 and finished January 21. Has made excellent recovery from initial problems -diaharra (sp) incontentince etc. However, he is continung with problems sleeping,(restless legs). Was given Ambien but it did not help. Now also on efixir. The biggest problem is regaining his strength and energy level. Continues to be easily fatigued. He has always been a very active man working on one project or another. What is the 'normal' length of time to recover from the radiation effects. He is 74, initial PSA was 32.5 and .03 after surgery. No involvement of lymph nodes but it had expanded into seminal vessels. Thank you.
