What a shock! It's been six months since I completed my forty Radiation treatments for 3+3=6 cancer. Everything went well especially after being lucky enough to have my cancer discovered by digital inspection. My PSA was low and Doctor was surprised. My samples confirmed the cancer and within a month I had started treatments. Out shopping when I had to go and was I shocked. I passed a bright red surply mix of urine and blood. Went home and drank a lot of water to help flush everything. Another day or two I had blood in my semen. This has occured once again but the blood was a brown, "old" color. The blood in the urine has tapered off with just one other time with a drop of blood at the start. A little stinging occured. I though this might just be a trac infection. Both blood in the urine and semen is what threwsad me. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

Probably good news. That radiation is doing what you wanted it to, killing off the inside of your prostate, and the cancer with it. Obviously, a call to the doctor is probably in order, but I would guess he will say it is nirmal.

It's been a full week since I finished my Salvage Radiation Treatments, I have blood in my urine every day now, but then I did the entire time I was being treated. It's easy for me to see, because I am still on a catheter. Some bags I empty are crystal clear, others slightly pink, some down right disgustingly looking, almost brownish. I was told this was all part of the process.

Hope that ease up for you soon, its unsettling to see even if it is ok. In your case, I would get my doctor to sign off on the "ok" part.
