Cancer: Prostate Board Index

I had HDR 24gy then IMRT 40gy in Nov-Dec 2007 at age 64 when in good shape at road bicycling. (I'm an ex-racer.) All of 2008 & 09 were fatigue-afflicted; my testosterone levels dropped from 410 before to 210 (bottom 2nd percentile) early in those two years (I checked it every 6 mo. by blood tests). Radiation causes internal inflammation as if an internal sunburn and recovery is slow

My nadir PSA steadied at 0.2 by early 2010 so I got on daily rub-in crème testosterone replacement and fatigue lifted and cycling fitness slowly recovered. Recovery after 2 years absent TRT I didn't experience so can't say how long it takes.
