Hi everyone. Unfortunately, I am a new member here. I am 64 and was diagnosed as Stage 1 in March. My PSA was 4.1, Gleason was 6 (3+3), and I had no symptoms. I chose IMRT (Varian machine) because I couldn't be close to my granddaughter for three months if I had the seeds.
Can anyone fill me in as to side effects during treatment? I start my first of 44 doses of radiation on Tuesday and hope to be prepared as best I can.
Thanks and Good Luck to everyone.
