This Monday begins my IMRT regimen. 34 treatments, 66 gigwatts or whatever its measurement is called. Got my CT, got my 3 freckles, my VIP parking pass for the hospital and am as ready to go as I will ever be. All my docs recommended this next step. My physical healing from surgery was slow and I am just starting to get back to feeling like myself. I hope this thing doesn't slow me back down too much, but Oh, well. My docs are calling it adjuvant/salvage. Any advice or words of wisdom from the many who have passed along their helpful thoughts to me as I continue this adventure? As always, much appreciated.

Take Metamucil, get plenty of excercise and avoid caffine and alcohol. You will do just fine.

64 years old.

PSA rising for 10 years to 40, free psa 10-15. Had 5 urologists, 12 biopsies and MRIS all neg. Doctors DXed BPH and continue to get biopsies yearly. 13th biopsy positive in 10-08, 2 cores of 25, G6 less than 5%. Scheduled for surgery as recommended by Urological Oncologist.

2nd Opinion from Dr Sholtz, a Prostate Oncologist, said DX wrong, pathology shows indolant cancer, but psa history indicates large cancer or metastasis. Futher tests and Color Doppler confirmed large transition zone tumor that 13 biopsies and MRIS missed. G7, 4+3, approx 16mmX18mm.

Combidex MRI in Holland eliminated lymphnode mets. Casodex and Proscar reduced psa to 0.6 and prostate from 60mm to 32mm. Changed diet, no meat and dairy. All staging tests indicate that tumor is local and non agressive. (PAP, PCA3, MRIS, Color Doppler, Combidex, tumor reaction to diet and Casodex, and tumor location in transition zone). Surgery a poor option because tumor is located next to the urethea and positive margin is very likely; permanent incontenance is also high probability with surgery.

Seed implants on 5-19-09, 3 hours door to door, no pain, minor side affects are frequency and urgency; very controlable with Flowmax and lasted 4 weeks. Daily activities resumed day after implants with no restrictions. Gold markers implanted with seeds to guide IMRT.

25 treatments of IMRT 6 weeks after seed implants. No side affects at all.

PSA at end of treatment 0.02 mostly the result of Casodex. When I stop Casodex next week expect PSA to rise. Next PSA in November. Treatments and side affects have greatly exceeded my expectations. Glad to have this 11 year journey finally conclude.

Finished number 8 of 39. Biggest problem I have is people without passes using the radiation oncology parking spots at my hospital resulting in 30 minute search for parking. If that is the only major problem during treatment, it will be fine. Squid.

My radiation oncology department has a nice, quiet, private waiting room with nice seats, a tropical aquarium (okay, maybe not great if your bladder needs to be full) and jigsaw puzzles.

So different from the my urologist's office, usually packed full and with the TV blasting out the lowest-common denominator program (and where I live, the bar is set pretty low.) And I don't know about you guys, but my uro's treatment rooms are decorated with enormous pictures of kidney stones. So you look away from the kidney stones to the table with gloves and KY, and after a minute of that you look back at the kidney stones...

English,

My day by day with IGRT is in the thread:

www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=1756808

Not sure what I would suggest, other than carrying a change of clothes/pads in the car until the water torture settles down.

It has not been the worst thing I've gone, through.

Finished 38 IMRT sessions last Thursday.  After one week, mostly back to normal except for urination urgency but improving.  Here's what the Mayo docs told me to do: (1) drink about 20 oz of water about 45 minutes prior to radiation because you want a full bladder to push some of the "innards" out of the path of radiation (2) avoid foods that cause gas (like raw veggies etc.) (3) do not force yourself to defecate and use Preparation H suppositories, metamucil and stool softeners because you might get some rectal discomfort about the 4th. week (4) keep exercising if you currently do. IMRT not a big deal considering what you have experienced already.  The Old Sailor 
Dx 07/09 Age 67  -  28 core saturation biopsy w/5 positive  (2 gleason 8, 2 gleason 7, 1 gleason 6)
RRP 8/13/09 Mayo Clinic Jacksonville
Path report upgraded gleason to 4+5=9
Negative margins/extraprostatic extension/seminal vessicles/ lymph nodes but perineural invasion present.
Two month post surgery PSA 0.022
Five month post surgery PSA  0.081
Seven month post surgery PSA 0.190
Eight month post surgery PSA 0.217
Started 38 sessions IMRT at Mayo Jacksonville on 4/12/10,  completed 6/4/10.  Few side effects except urinary urgency and  frequency during the day and some rectal discomfort near the end of therapy.

English,

My SRT went by much faster than I thought... We also had a salt water aquarium in the waiting room and I became friends with a little puffer fish in there.... Always came to the edge of the tank by the chair to greet whoever was sitting there...

With plenty of rest, I experienced very few significant side effects... Only some rectal proctitus whuch the metamucel will tend to fix up... Absolutely no effects on the urinary track for my body which was very welcome to me. The rectal proctitus has cleared up in the 3 months post treatment period.

After my treatments ended, I added vitamin d, omega 3, and pomegranite extract to my dietary supplement. I also cut way down on red meats. Just had my first post SRT PSA result Monday and it was a great result... 0.02. So my body responded very well to this treatment and I realize that I am a very fortunate patient.

This dang PCa is an evil beast and I pray that you (along with all our other PCa brothers) will respond well to the treatment and whip PCa into submission...

God Bless,

pasayten

Sitting here in the waiting area for treatment # 24. Only (slight) problem I'm experiencing is weird tummy feelings and grumblings, likely the cause of some loose stool movements. Now go in bits about 5 times a day instead of the usual once, 60 minutes after waking up.

 

My trips are about 90 minutes each way and I drink 350ml. of water 45 minutes before treatment. All in all, the past 4 weeks have been little more than a blur.

 

Good luck with your treatments, mine are nothong to be concerned about although at first, I was quite reluctant to go ahead with them.

Oh, just heard my name called. Got to go and get zapped now. Debbie always compliments me after the treatment by saying:

"Your looking rather radiant today!"

Just got home from my last session of RT. (I had 33 sessions)

Feeling much better than I thought I was going to.

Side effects have been tiredness, frequency and urgency of urination and those sort of tummy rumblings that have been mentioned. (Some rumbings made me ache in the area where the operation took place too.)
I thought things would get worse than they did (although the effects will carry on for about a fortnight before they start to get better) When the side effects showed up after a week I thought they would get worse and worse as each week went by, but it was all okay. (The best day during the week with the catheter was for instance much worse than the worse day of RT)

I went by train so had no worries about parking space.

There were ten RT treatment rooms with a total of six small separate waiting areas, so all very quite. A bit busy in the main waiting area when waiting to see the doc for the check-ups. When time (and the weather) allowed I also went out into the patients' private garden to wait.

Glad it's all over, but you know what, I almost feel like I'm going to miss it next week!

Been on a special diet for about 10 weeks too, to keep me off food that produces gas etc so looking forward to some mild Chinese tonight and a first beer for all that time too.

Weird thing was that in all the trips by train it never rained on me till today.

All the best

Alf, you must have picked the "short" term treatment so you could finish first!
Glad you got it all out of the way.
I have three more next week.

142 et al

I don't know about "short term" I am in a way worried that I have not encountered anyone else having so little RT. I hope this is enough. I asked the doc "Why 33?" and she said that was what they had decided I needed, but still.....

Alf,
The real pity is that we only know they were right or wrong is if they were wrong, and nothing else gets us first ( skull a vicious Amsterdam bike rider - nearly been run down multiple times there!)

It was explained to me that there is an amount of radiation they want to deliver, and body structures they have to avoid damaging.

My place would do 45 treatments if it were primary treatment, with only a slightly higher Gys. I guess it is up to the people who do the plans. As much as they charged, they had best be good! (I just got my bill for the first half today - looking for lost pennies in the sofa smhair )

At my hospital, the general plans seem to be, if you had surgery, you get 33, if no surgery, you get 39, so I get the 33 and I'm not asking for more. LOL

English: Good luck as you start your radiation journey, and it is all about an endurance contest, so just worry about one day at the time. After awhile, it becomes very routine, and when you cross the finish line, it will just become a blur.


I completed 39 treatments with a total of 72 gys, which is on the heavy side for salvage radiation. But that was the dose my radiation oncologist came up with, even though that is equal to some men's primary radiation treatment.
