If you don't like too much information about such things, read no further.
Anyway, here's the situation: In 2000, I had an appendectomy AFTER my appendix had burst. This has caused adhesions to some organs and bones in my body.
In additions, my prostate is now so small that just looking for it to remove it is risky surgery.
So, it looks like I'm going to be undergoing radiation therapy and hormonal therapy.
I had a simulation on Thursday. Starting March 17, I'm going to be irradiated five days a week for nine weeks. It remains to be seen if I'll be continuing to work or taking sick leave during that time. As I understand it, there's one major possible side effect of the radiation treatment: I may VERY suddenly have to get to a bathroom. Since my job requires me to be on the phone much of that day, and suddenly having to say "Whoops! 'Scuse me, gotta go!" might be very inconvenient, I may end up staying home. My first day or so of looking into this situation is going to involve my becoming serious "Depends-ent." (Sorry, reading too much "Jumble" lately.) If it's too much, I'll be catching up on my DVR watching at home. My cats will be happy, though.
The hormonal therapy will involve pills and shots. The side effect of these may be a reduced sex drive. Which may affect stuff I have commissioned in the future. Have to wait and see.
Again, when I know more, I'll pass it on.
