This is the illustration by the radiation oncologist
The radiation oncologist, Dr. K, says there is a 10% chance of damage, and a 25% chance of curing cancer.
The Rx is for zoladex and cacidex, anti-androgen therapy. Start zoladex before cadidex. one dose subcutaneously every 3 mos. needle zoladex could be administered here. 3 mos. back to him strangling PSA cells and likely shrink it. scar tissue close off bladder, (chance) colostomy bag bag, catheter would change life. bladder frequency a risk, too. even if it doesn't cure it could control, do use radiation to control cancer, would slow it down and push the schedule back, if not curative, depriving the cancer cells of fuel vs. controlling it. impossible to predict, we're humans and not absolute science.
"Don't over blow risks of side effects." Stoma nurse could help us to understand the colostomy bag.
There are several videos on-line showing how to changed you colostomy bag. It doesn't look easy.
