This is my second post in the forum.
So I had my Da Vinci RRP exactly 2 weeks ago and am recovering well. Unfortunately, the final pathology report was not as good as we had hoped for. As it turned out, they found 2 tumour in my right seminal vesicle, and labeled me pT3b.
Today I received a letter from my urologist confirming a follow up meeting for me with a tip-tip oncologist in London. The letter stated that I may need an adjuvant radiotherapy.
While I basically understand the definition of adjuvant radiotherapy, I don't know how it is done and for how long. (tried google but didn't help much).
Is it a one-off thing, or is it something that needs to be done over a long period of time, or is it something that is done intensively over a short period of time?
Will this radiotherapy do anything to my health or general well-being? I mean, will I feel ill or tired or any other side effects attached to it, or will I be able to function as normal?
Any of you who knows the answers to my questions, please do help. I haven't been earning for e few months now, and my immediate future planning will depend on what this therapy will do to me over what period of time.
PS: I am self employed, and basically have stopped working since I was diagnosed with PCa last September. I have planned to return to Africa (where I run my business) shortly after new year, and wondered if the adjuvant radiotherapy will mess my schedule up, or whether some adjustments to flight bookings need to take place thereof.
