I promised to let you all know about my friend that went to Canada for HIFU. I don't know a lot of details about his cirstances but I know he first had radiation treatments for PCa about 10 years ago. His PSA went up. Not sure what reading. At any rate, in November he went to Canada for the HIFU. He is having terrible side effects. He cannot urinate, cannot control it, his bowel has been affected. He is going tomorrow to have a "roto rooter" job. I am not really sure what that is unless it is to remove scar tissue/inflamed tissue from his urethra. Just wanted to let you know how it turned out for him. I was so hoping it would be a good result.
Also my husband just finished his 35th radiation treatment last Friday. He is experiencing bowel problems. He is literally chained to the toilet. He feels good except that he has cabin fever. The doctors assure him that this will heal and he will be ok in a few weeks. They told him 2 - 4 weeks.
