Throwing this one out there.....
As my signature shows, I ended 36 IMRT sessions on Feb 1. I'm starting to leak a bit, nothing like I did post-RP, but enough to be a bother.... a few times I've leaked at night laying down -- which I didn't do post-RP.
I realize that the side effects of radiation often take a while to show themselves, but I'm wondering if anyone's dealt with post radiation incontinence issues and can share any expierences there. My Oncologist is referring back to my Uro. My post RP leaking cleared up in stages and took about 10 weeks to resolve. Just wondering if there is a progression/resoloution curve here as well.
ALSO.... Last year I used Serenity Pads for Men and liked them...but have been out of the market until recently...Now I can't find them in the local stores....anybody know if they still make those....I bought some Depends for Men, but don't like them as much...AS ALWAYS-- your help is much appreciated!
