I had a positive margin, so I underwent additional radiation therapy within the first year following my surgery. They started me with hormones two months prior - seems like that will weaken PC cells so they can get zapped better. I had no problems with the radiation treatments. Since I'm retired, it was no problem going each day, and it only took 10-15 minutes each. They will work around your individual schedule. The hormones have some side effects that can be troubling, but so far, I haven't had a real problem. I keep active to offset the possible fatigue issue, and try to control my weight. Libido is lessened, but the choice of ridding myself of the cancer is more important.
Good luck on your decision and further treatment.
