Prostate cure via external radiation

I did have prostate cancer and my urologist recommended a) no surgery because of my other medical problems, b)watchful waiting, but with no enthusiasm, c) external radiation, which seemed the best choice. I ubderwent 8 weeks of external radiation and the result was the elimination of the cancer; PSAs ever since have been in the raange 0-1.0, Great! BUT, I have been plagued with both urinary and bowel incontinence since that time. The intensity of the urinary incontinence has decreased but not eliminated, but the bowel incontinence still causes me grief. Unfortunately, I was not advised of these two "side effects" by the urologist or the radiologist or his staff.
