Just got back from yet another Urologist, seems no wants to place markers in my prostate after I had a TURP for RT treatment. The reasoning they say is the risk of prostate radiation side effects ( incontinence urine and bowel, needing to cath myself, etc...) that will last my lifetime is too great, I have been told because of the type of PCa I have life, expectancy is 24-36 months. And the radiation will just affect my QOL.
1. Has anyone had RT after they had a TURP?
2. If so, do you have any side effects?
3. Is an Axumin scan that much better than a bone scan, one urologist said if the Axumin scan is negative he would place the markers...
