I was diagnosed with early stage PC two days ago so I am considering treatment options. Can you share with me the side effects you experienced from the Cyberknife treatment? I'm interested in both long and short term.
I am concerned about side effects of this procedure, specifically sexual side effects and also incontinence problems. Anything you could share would be greatly appreciated. Incidentally, my Gleason score is 7 and I am 77 years old. Thank you.
I just found out yesterday from Urologist, that I am a '7'!.. I spoke to someone at a local clinic in Scottsdale,AZ, who recommended i get copies of the PSA, notes from the urologist, copy of the MRI, etc..My PSA was 10.3...They wanted to see those documents to gage if I am a good candidate for Cyberknife..Thanks..
Thanks for your Reply!
