Dogdad60 Experience

Hello, I had RP 5 weeks ago, struggling with leakage, and dealing with the "new" me.

Radiation treatment

Met with a radiation oncologist, and will get PSA test soon. With the size of the nodule, high grade, and margins, my doctors seem to be ready to radiate me. I'm 61, in good shape, and am hoping to have some time to heal. My rectum had a hole stitched, much pain.

Mental health support

I have had depression for many years, and this came on fast when I turned 60. I read that Harvard doc recommends active surveillance for 6 months before rt after RP. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
