It's good to have one week down and let Bob know I am thinking about
him and pulling for him that he gets through this with minor side affects. As you know I followed a simular path and completed my 36 treatments 26 days ago and while I thought at the time I was affected very little I can now say that it's nice to have the system working well again and can eat and drink normal and not worry about
bowel problems. The other thing is I am really starting to feel as though I do have more energy so it did affect me more than I knew or would admit at the time. These next 6 weeks will go by quickly and my hope is this works for Bob as well as I hope my treatments were sucessful. I go in the first part of August for the first post radiation PSA test and that will tell how things are looking.
Good luck and know that you will be in my prayers for an easy time of it and also for success in the end.
