I am winding down on RT. Only 7 more out of 39 to go. The RT was suggested, even though PSA was undetectable, by my Surg. Onc., whom I have a great deal of faith in. Last week the RT onc. suggested Flomax to cut down on nightime trips to the Loo. I am wondering how long does it take to kick in? Also, has anyone else who may be taking taking flomax found that it increases leakage during the day?
The RT onc. said that some folks will not take the flomax and "just tough it out." He pretty much left it up to me.
Any experiences greatly appreciated.
