Just Finished IMRT

Just finished my 38th and last IMRT treatment. Now comes the agonizing wait for PSA to drop back to undetectable levels. I understand that this can take a year or two so I'll have to live with that.

Treatments have mostly kept me away from the board these last two months but I hope to be back to giving you my occasional two cents worth. I can now give first hand info for DaVinci and for IMRT.

Came through the treatents pretty well as far as side-effects go. Still at about 85-90% of my normal energy level, butt is a little sore but not much else has changed.

Now to start working on getting my energy back and to start re-introducing the whole grains and fresh produce I had to avoid these last two months.

I'm looking forward to re-connecting and trying to stay more in touch.
