I finished salvage radiation almost exactly three years ago.
My PSA dropped to less than 0.1 by 6 months after treatment, and has remained there since. My next check will be in July.
I had a passing (pun intended) side effect of proctitis (loose stools, painful bowel movements) which was easily treated and temporary.
ED was not worsened, still recover 100% functionality with Cialis. No problem with incontinence.
The treatments themselves were a piece of cake.
So for me, yes, it seems like it was worth it.
Time will tell...
You can read my blog with more details than you probably want (see signature).
Good luck on your treatments.
