3 Months - The peak of radiation.

So, here I am at the 3 month mark.

The radiation has peaked, and should start dropping off which means my side effects should really start tapering off. Good.

I went in for a PSA test today, the first since the procedure. They will monitor the PSA every three months for the next two years. That's about the only way they have to see if the treatment was effective. The PSA levels can bounce all over the place for the first year or so with brachytherapy. So, I'm not looking for a miracle on this first test.

I'll see the Doc in a couple of days, get the results of the test, and take it from there.

I'll post when I know more.
