Age 57, robot protatectomy 2 weeks ago. Still feel very rough - maybe have a uti, going tomorrow for a urine check
The surgeon glossed the topic of radiation at the first postop visit - said maybe "later" we'd consider radiation.
My wife is a nurse - she has an inside track and has already spoken with a radiation oncologist - the recommendation here is radiation for 7 weeks
I went for a cure with surgery but the location of the tumor puts me in a position of what to do now. I did the robot for the best chance of avoiding incontinence and impotence.
Now I'm wondering if I was lucky enough to have accomplished that with the surgery what are my chances after radiation? Looking for honesty here guys - thanks
