Gold Markers Inserted

Just had gold markers inserted. I go back for CT-Simulation calibration on 26 Dec. It seems like a while since I had the biopsy and was diagnosed, but I am eager to get started with IMRT. I should start the radiation treatments the week after CT-Simulation calibration. The hormone shot really kicked in ED. Any recommendations?

Had my CT Simulation yesterday. Anxious to start IMRT. Does anyone know of any complications during or after 8 weeks of IMRT? Some have experienced continuing pain after IMRT. Don't know if I should expect the same.
