Since my surgery I have different acres and pains and feelings everyone once in a while and as you know my PSA also went back up. Everything the doctors have told me is it would'nt be related to the Pca becaseu the reading is so low yet. But I just figure they cut me open sewed things back up and I probably have different feelings everyone now and then, I am not getting any younger and they did alter my internal workings. As to up-date you on my radiation because I know this is a route you may too have to follow, as of this morning I half way through this phase. I have completed 18 radiation treatments with 18 to go and to date I might feel a little more tired by the end of the week but I have also been very busy at work and chasing kid activities late in the day and last week I had a little irritated bowel but nothing bad. I took a little over the counter medication a couple days and not even full doses and it's ok. If this is as bad as it gets I will be very pleased. Hang in there and know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
