After rising PSA, DRE, Sonogram, and Biopsy I have been told 6 of 12 biopsies are positive for Adenocarcinoma with Gleason scores of 6 (4 biopsies) & 7 (2 biopsies). My Doctor gave several options and I have chosen IMRT (7 weeks) with markers placed and hormone therapy during radiation. First appointment with radiology is in 11/2 weeks. PSA will be taken every 6 months as follow-up.

I believe IMRT is a better choice because it seems to have a good success rate with fewer side affects. Any thoughts on my choice or what I can expect during and after radiation?
