Radiologist's targets with PC metastasized to local lymph glands?

I'm 66, stay fit and feel good today!

Will be asking Radiologist at Monday meeting, but wanted to run this by this forum.

I've been diagnosed with stage 4 PC and on Eligard along with the radiation tx's. I expect they will show me the whole plan when I ask, but I'm just now coming up with the questions.

I'm about 2 weeks in with the M-F radiation tx's and wondering exactly what they are "shooting" at with the rays. I'm sure they're zapping the prostate, but I haven't asked if they're zapping the lymph glands where they've suspected some spread. ??

Do you suppose they're targeting lymph glands, as well?

Carpe diem!
