Due for ct tomorrow then radiotherapy in just over 3 weeks.
Any advice as to what to expect re side effects or indeed anything to tip me off?
Sorry, also seminal vesicles involved
Don't let your good days be spoilt by the worry of a bad day, that may or may not come along.
Thanks for replying ,think I need to ask more questions!!
Hi sorry my seminal vessels were also treated!
Hi Asta agreed but the scary thing is if you had not joined this forum you may not have known what questions to ask!
You should get the same amount of radiation just a higher amount every session over 20 than it would be for 37 if that makes sense - so the total amount of radiation is the same however many sessions you have.
As for whether or not it is in the lymph glands you should ask about that firstly with the consultant/Dr who originally told you this and then with the radiologist/oncologist - quite often they change things that the urologist has told you because they have more experience of reading the scans etc than the urologist. You should definitely check this out.
