I am a 60 year old African American male diagnosed with prostate cancer
(PSA 8.5) in October of 2002. Had RT on January 21, 2003. Gleason score was
6 (3+ 3), all margins were clear but there was Perineural invasion (PNI).
My RT side effects were brief and minimal. My PSAs were >0.1 for almost 7
years. Then rose to 0.2 in November of 2009 then went up to 0.3 in May of
2010 and down to 0.2 in August of 2010 and back up to 0.3 in November 2010.
I completed 13 of prescribed 39 sessions of Radiation today.
I read and found comments very informative (especially, Kongo's). So, I am
pleased to join forum and welcome any advice and/or comments. I wish you
all aHappy and prosperous New Year. God Bless!
