    External radiation (Three dimensional)

    Radiation

    At the age of 51 was when diagnosed. Given three options. Choose 3D rad. Never occurred to me to ask what happens if this doesn't work. Five years latter I'm getting my prostate frozen ( cryrosomething or other). Currently psa count went from 4.7 to 20.5. Have just had my first hormone shot.

    Painless Experience: Neutral/NA

    Procedure or Surgery

    Not being able to have sex does not mean your brain agrees. Also there are times when I'm going to the the bathroom four times in a half hour. Always feel like I have to pee during those attacks.
