Hello everyone. This is my first post and I am writing it as I wait to be discharged from the hospital. My Gleason was 3+4 and my PSA is about 37. My first bone scan was negative for any obvious cancer. I have a very experienced onocologist who recommended 25 VMAT IMRT and 2 HDR brachytherapies. They are being done simultaneously because of insurance reasons. I had my first HDR yesterday hence why I am waiting to be discharged. I had another ebeam this morning while waiting and after that I pied a lot of blood.. interested as I had no blood before the treatment so I guess that shows that although you feel nothing during the 5 minute treatment it is cooking your insides. My second urine pass was much less blood but they will not discharge me until there is no blood. I think I am going to be fine. I have maintained a good attitude from the beginning. I have also been very active and healthy my whole life. Triathlete in my youth and now an avid cyclist and swimmer. It helps to be healthy of course but not aragant as cancer does not care how healthy you are. For those of you looking for alternative treatments I have tried a few and your welcome to ask me about them. If your looking to be treated in Thailand because of cost or different treatments then offered in your home country I can give you information about that to.
