I finished SRT 4 weeks ago. I had read the various threads on the forum and what is evident is that each hospital has slightly different protocols.
I was advised to eat my normal diet, but to cut out all fizzy drinks and caffeine, eat white bread and eat less fruit. I asked about enemas and the hospital said it was a big no no.
About half way through the therapy, my waterworks were greatly affected. I was peeing every ten minutes at one stage and almost wet myself on the treatment table on a few occasions. I had to get medication to help and, even now, my urination is not back to post prostatectomy standards. I'm using pads again, but not every day.
More distressing, my poo turned to the consistency of Mr Whippy ice cream and I soiled myself on several occasions. Things in that area are now back to normal but it did take at least two weeks to settle down.
Your bowel being empty for treatment is really important and your bladder being at the right volume is too. One day I was told I had too much wind and needed to fart! It just seemed such an exact regime.
It's a funny treatment. You go each day. The machine rotates very slowly around you. You feel nothing. I even wondered what it was really doing. It seemed a bit magic wand to me.
Despite my difficulties, it wasn't too bad. And, with my PSA now at 0.006, it might just have done the trick.
