Seed Procedure Problems ?
Recently diagnosed with PC. After biopsy, graded at 7 Gleason, 4+3, PSA
5+ but only 5% cancer detected. Met with Radiation Oncologist after 1 hour of thorough explanation of all + and -, I am opting for the seed procedure and Dr. has approved. I'm 75 in fairly good health and want to get this over quickly.
The Dr. is very experienced and has been treating PC since 1970's. Has the very latest equipment and follows the standards of Farber, Moffet, Johns Hopkins, and Mayo cancer centers.
I'd like to hear from anyone who had this procedure and what their immediate and long term problems were AFTER the seeds were implanted.
