Okay, I have had seven of 38 treatments for pc recurrence after RP. Four of my treatments have been frustrating at best. I can’t seem to find a good regiment that will have stool free , or properly hydrated before treatment. I started my own survey of five other patients that are experiencing the same frustration. This appears to be a missing, but important step for radiation treatment. Why make a mold, put tattoos on if you don’t address bladder and bowel concerns. Don’t get me wrong, the staff does address it, but there is no guidance on a proper nutrition for this therapy. I have tried not eating a evening meal, only soup for an evening meal. Milk of magnesia the night before, and morning of treatment. Nothing has worked. Being told we will not treat you, because of x or y does not sound good when the treatment you are receiving appears to be the only thing that will cure you.
