hi, I have a RO who says I am being observed for possible salvage radiation. I had a RP about two years ago with a Gleason 9 and stage T3a. My post RARP PSA was not detectable. However, Recently my PSA is creeping up.
I think at PSA of 0.1, the Salvage RT process will begin.
Are there several techniques of salvage RT to whole pelvis area and nearby lymph nodes?
IGRT is available locally, but is Proton Beam radiation (or other types RT) more precise or likely to have fewer side effects?
Hormone therapy will be also be used in this process? Should I ask about orgovyx ( relugolix) pills?
thanks for any feedback on these topics.
