Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Thanks for the laugh, that was great!!
I begin 22 treatments of EBRT tomorrow. I am on my 1st 90 day shot of Lupron and then scheduled for Brachy late August-early September. At 55 and active I concern myself the more I read with side effects of Radiation. When my PSA went way down after the Lupron shot I was hoping I could just go right into Brachy but to no avail. I live in Houston and have what appear to be very competent and reputable Oncologists with modern equipment at MD Anderson in Houston. Any side effects you have to report at all. like burning urination etc? I remember that ugly feeling once from College quack shack and that was not fun.
