Hi my name is Bob and I'm 71 years old. I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and a spot on my sacral bone.

I will stat proton radiation next week \. 5 days a week for 8 weeks.

I like to have a couple of cocktails at night will I still be able to. It my be hard for me to just stop?


Any advice and side effects I can expect will be greatly appreciated


Thank You All
