My overall impression, of the 2 main treatments for PC, is as follows:
1. Radio & Hormone therapy. - If your Cancer is slow growing, I feel this is the best way to treat it. It does take quite a time, 2 years + for most. There seems less chance of Urine incontinence, with RT. With regards to ED problems, I'm getting back to my "Active" normal now (at 72) - following my own RT & HT treatment.
2. Removal of Prostate - there seems to be more likely to be Urine incontinence. It does get the job done pretty quickly, though I understand, for at least a month afterwards - things are pretty painful or uncomfortable. Sometimes, Radio therapy is needed to complete the job later. But removal, can be the best option for some. It was not for me, though.
But of course, cancers can be quite different & your Oncologist will be your best guide.
