Was diagnosed with Prostate cancer (intermediate level), last fall. Underwent daily  external beam radiation treatment January 16-March 19 (44 treatments).


The worst stuff is performed by the urologist. The radiation-oncology stuff is painleess.

Appoinment followup with radiation-oncologist this Thursday. I expect either him or the urologist will get my PSA blood test again, to learn if treatment worked.

Supposedly radiation is 90+ percent effective. Stated differently, they predict you will eventually die from something other than prostate cancer.

Assuming successful cancer treatment outcome, my remaining situation will be lifelong rare NPH (Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus-shunt etc.) Separate story if interested.
