I am David. I am 84. I live Near Marysville CA.
Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in Dec 2017.
Seemingly it did not spread away from the prostate.
Although my PSA is rather low, about 9,
my Gleason Score is 8. Thus, I am a high risk boy.
I started Hormone Therapy. Next is radiation Therapy.
The Cancer Center said that I will need to implant markers in my prostate.
I hate the idea as I am afraid of future anal intercourse problems.
Do all Radiation Centers require these?
Also I was told that I will need 45 sessions. Anther center said 40 only.
What about Proton radiation?
Be Glad for info and experience
