There is risk with any treatment. Given that your at G9, I'd think the risk/reward equation would be very close to saying the possible reward is worth the risk.
I had primary radiation and so far the side effects have been manageable. You might see more bowel issues or get fatigued during treatment. The worst long term effect so far has been an increase in ED, but the pills still manage that.
I'll be in the shop.
