Discuss w urologist: No advice can be given without knowing stage & grade (requires result of prostate biopsy) of your prostate cancer. Was there any consideration of surgery before radiation?. What kind of hormone therapy are you receiving, estrogenic or anti-androgen?. Has there been consideration of castration surgery. Best advice is from a uro-oncologist
