I am not aware of any literature on this. In theory, if the patient develops bowel wall inflammation, there may be a slightly higher risk of peritonitis due to enteric organisms, and there could be increased peritoneal permeability if there is any peritoneal imflammation from the radiation. However, if the field of radiation is limited to the prostate, the risk of having PD-related issues is low.
