    Oh No (Diagnosed): I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in Feb 2010. I decided to do proton radiotherapy at MPRI in Bloomington, IN from May until June 2010, the aim being to irradiate the general area with 50 Gy b/c my Gleason was 3+5. I then underwent Brachytherapy and had an additional 110 Gy.
    My side effects were ongoing urination problems and after a year I developed an ulcerated colon with bleeding. On the other hand, my PSA went from 8 to now (Dec 2011) 0.2 ng/ml and the bleeding has stopped.
