Any side effects from salvage radiation therapy are far less than doing nothing and the cancer heading out to other
locations in your body. Yes, the radiation destroyed any of the nerves my surgeon probably saved, but I had no others effects from radiation. The hormones have caused some mild "hot flashes" and some fatigue, but I have been keeping active, and will make it through this for another 9 months. I choose to do whatever is necessary to keep this beast at bay. Do more reading and thinking before heading off on either salvage therapy or nothing.
