As with most of the others, I was told to come in with a full bladder. Nothing about bowels. I was told it was to help lift the blader out of the way of the radiation field. They asked me each time I came in to verify that my bladder was full or near full. Water was available near the waiting area.
I had no effects on my bladder or urinary track thru and after the SRT process of 32 treatments of 2 gys each for 64 gys.
