I have decided now on SBRT for my PCa.
One open question remains: Mr OAR.
23cc prostate and good margin to rectum with SBRT approach
Dr thought not much benefit for me given my geometries, but still provides maximum possible protection.
The flip side - Dr mentioned 1% of his customers with some awful complications. 1% seems not too bad odds though to get maximum protection.
Love to hear the community experience and thoughts.
Here is a study i found on side effects:
"Results: The manufacturer website reported risks including pain, needle penetration, and/or gel injection into a nearby organ or blood vessel, local inflammation, infection, urinary retention, and local rectal injury or symptoms. There were 22 unique reports discussing 25 patient cases in the MAUDE database from January 2015 to March 2019, with an increasing number of reports each year up through 2018. Unique major complications including acute pulmonary embolism, severe anaphylaxis, prostatic abscess and sepsis, purulent perineal drainage, rectal wall erosion, and rectourethral fistula were reported."
Thanks for any help, my best to you.
