I sure appreciate your posts and your thoughts.
Just wondered if you and your husband had gotten the
pathology report back from John Hopkins yet?
When my husband was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer,
at age 68, his urologist gave him several different treatment
options. The main ones were surgery and radiation, which
includes the radiation treatments or the prostate seed implant
(brachytherapy). He mentioned cryotherapy, which is freezing the prostate also.
My husband 's radiation oncologist wanted him to have both
the radiation treatments and brachytherapy which is what he
did. He had no side effects from the radiation treatments
and only some urgency when he has to urinate
left from the brachytherapy and we are hoping this will leave
in time. It is a good idea to check out all treatment options
thoroughly before making a decision.
Wishing you both the very best,
