Hi is there anyone else who is worried about having to wait for radiotherpy until things get better and how long will this be. I was told that prostate cancer patients will have to wait because they are safe on hormones but will the delay in treatment have any affect on the outcome. The optinum time is 3 months and I was about to start and so was told it would be 6 but who knows if it will be then.

Look after yourselves stay safe

Best wishes

3 years ago when I started my HT they said the longer you are on it before RT the better - 6 to 9 months was advocated then.  In that case it shouldn't affect the outcome too much.
