Today I began my 4 session treatment with CK and it went well. Dr Fuller is great and I have full confidence in the plan. My father and uncle both had PCa and did well with radiation. My question is for others who had any 4 day treatments to share , what were the side effects and longer term outcomes? Thanks all. 58 year old MRI 3t 34cc volume 1.5 cm lesion abutting capsule PSA - 2/17 4.1 6/18 5.5 8/18 6.9 8/18 6.15 4K score 26% Biopsy 9/18 Gleason 3+4=7 1 of 4 cores right side T2b

Rick - things went very well. I am feeling well at day 3. Actually ran 2 miles yesterday morning and just some fatigue today. Good luck on your decision.
