Well, week six is done, put it in the books. 2 more weeks to go and SRT is done. I understand now why guys who’ve been through SRT, ART, or RT as primary, say it’s a marathon. And one more (3 month) shot to go on the Lupron, end November. Then it’s just wait and see.
So far, no troubling side effects. I’m pretty tired at the end of the day, but I think that’s a combo of RT, ADT and in large part, waking at 4:15 every morning, driving into the city, then back out to work.
Had a few days of 3 bowel movements, but it doesn’t happen often. No urinary frequency.
From the ADT, mild hot flashes, followed by sweats and then I get. Cold.
If it stays this way, I’ll be happy. And if my PSA stays undetectable, I’ll be overjoyed, but that’s a ways off.
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
