What was your experience with salvage radiation?

I have to have 39 sessions with salvage radiation for recurrent prostate cancer. I was interested in hearing about peoples' experience, what was it like day-to-day while getting the radiation.... your body (pain/etc.) and emotions.

  1. Hi PCBRO I was in your exact position in 2018 and needed to do the 40 treatments + Lupron some 5 years after surgery. You will want to check our a video diary I recorded every day of treatment. The segments run under 3 min each. It explains my initial concerns, fears, reactions to treatment, various issues, how I included family members and more. If interested the video journey can be found at www.TheProstateCancerCoach.com. Our local hospital uses it as do several organizations across the US. Feel free to reach out if you need more information. Dennis (prostatecancer.net Team)
