Impacts of radiation therapy on PD symptoms

Recommended Posts

Hello doctor. I have just started a 44 session radiation therapy course for stage 1 low grade prostate cancer. Other than the advertised urinary side effects (which overlap with PD and BPH symptoms) and fatigue in the later weeks is there any possibility of the other PD symptoms worsening during radiation?

 

Thanks as always for your time!

Most of my patients do well with radiation for prostate cancer but sometimes the PD symptoms worsen just from the stress and anxiety.  If the symptoms worsen, be sure to see the doc for a med adjustment.  Also stay hydrated and consider the possibility of a urinary track infection.
