Dark blood in the semen after cyberknife

Hello, I completed my cyberknife treatments about 16 months ago.  After the initial biopsy (before CK), there was dark blood in the semen.  Now it has returned.  Does anyone have a similar experience with this dark coloring of the semen after CK?  My PSA continues to drop (now at 2.09) and no other symptoms to speak of.  I would welcome any response of others per above.  Thanks.

After a biopsy, there can be blood in the semen. This lasts for a few weeks. May also be experiencing side effects from radiation.

thx for your response.  Yes there was after the biopsy.  This is occurring 16 months after cyberknife treatment.

Do bring this up with your Radiation Oncologist. It appears that your seminal vesicals were hit hard...

thx for your response.  I am no longer seeing the radiation oncologist, as my PSA values continue to drop 16 months after cyberknife treatment.  I am trying to find out if others that have had cyberknife have experienced the same issue and for how long after.

...since it is likely that the blood has resulted due to the radiation

Only time I had that problem was after biopsy prior to treatment as expected.  My PSA is well below 1, glad to know yours is continuing to drop.

thanks for your responses.  does not appear to be noticeable all the time.  I'll monitor and watch for psa tests to continue dropping.
