I discovered I had prostate cancer about a month ago with 9 out of 12 biopsy samples of 7 to 9 Gleason scores. Bone scan and CT scan showed no cancer. My urologist gave me firmagon last week and I had a little pain and redness for a few days. He plans to give me a shot of lupron after 4 weeks. I am to meet my radiation oncologist next Monday, August 27, to discuss a radiation plan. My question to those of you who have done this before is what data and questions should I ask him? I like to plan ahead especially for these treatments.
I will be 90 in November and in very good health due good cardio and strength exercises most days and trying to keep to a Mediterranean diet.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
