Thread: If you had ART or SRT, when (if ever) did you start to see side effects?

  1. #11
    I had some side effects the last couple of weeks of treatment (SRT in the form of IMRT). Not a huge deal--it was radiation proctitis. Got a prescription for a topical (well you squirt it up your backside) treatment called Proctofoam. Instant temporary relief.
    The proctitis subsided after treatment and was completely gone within a matter of weeks. All the gory details in my blog, lol. SRT seems to have cured me, btw. It's now been a dozen years with undetectable PSAs. Best wishes to you, Busby.

    I'm going to have to ask about that Proctofoam today. Three more days will finish up the 25 days of pelvic lymph node radiation treatments and next week starts 14 days of fascia boost. I hope the fascia boost does not hit the main exit.
