Going to have radiation Therapy next month along with 2nd testosterone reducer shot. No testosterone is tuff with all the side effects, but shot shrinks cancer tumor. God I need a break!

Welcome to the forums, Al! I wish it was under better circumstances, but I hope you find some support here.

Was your ileostomy cancer related? 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

I understand that Proton therapy is superior to radiation therapy for prostate cancer .

Yes I read that, but the radiation therapy along with 2 Test. killing shots should do. Stage 2 cancer caught very early. thanks for info!!

Every thing is ok...so far so good!! Mardi Gras has come and gone!! When you live here you try and avoid Mardi Gras and go elsewhere, like skiing in Utah!!
