Unfortuatly in my my low agreesive life(like a hermit lving in a cave)not bothering anyone I was fortuate enough to aquire prostate cancer. Don,t ask me all the specifications of it.I did notice I had a psa of 16. Well I had it yanked out courtesy of DR R Austin Urology. So I got on the worry about the PSA group
.Oviously in the back of your mind you don,t want it to spread. I have to face it cancer is cancer.The PSA went down to undetechtable.Then it went up to a PSA of 3. Dr R suggested radiation .Before you know it I was at the the austin center fro radiation oncology(a branch of Austin urology. They are very efficient . Got dye stuck up my penis and some goo in my ass. The next week treatment began.39 times on the imrt.With the 3 able female techs who oviously have instructed 100s of men to yank down there pants (covered up with a towel exposing just the public hairs and the top of your thighs down to your butt The reason for this was to line up the laser so the linear accelerator can do its job. I got used to yanking down my pants but to this day it was uncomfortable.
39 times 39 copayments.Did it help ? Not sure 40 to 50 persent chance. Can you imagine all that treatment and my PSA still up. I think its depressing
