8 months post treatment at present. Had six month review with RO. Decided on SBRT due to surgical, erectile and urinary issues with RP. Prior abdominal surgery means DiVinci machine could not be used, and few doctors do a lot of open procedures. Used SBRT on a MRL machine (MRI guided radiation treatment). The machine was only 4-5 months old so relatively new technology. Had Gay Radiation Oncologist who is awesome. 5 treatments. At 6 months my PSA had fallen from 10 to 3.5. Asked doc what he thought. He said if I was below 50% of original value at 6 months we are on target. No erectile issues. Urinary issues were there before. Haven't changed. On a more TMI note, ejaculation is still there, but color, amount, etc... changed quickly after radiation therapy. So far, glad I did SBRT.
On an interesting side note my brother did SBRT, also but his PSA went up at 3 months. Given that radiation pretty much always destroys prostate cells, this is very unusual. They checked for metastases but found none. Probably inflammation and/or some sort of infection. Since my bro almost died from biopsy, maybe residual infection. Watching and maybe another biopsy.
