Glad the volume study went well...to tell the truth, that was the worst part of my brachytherapy experience! My wife also gave me the "welcome to my world" commentary - LOL - after hearing my description!
I'm also well on the other side...not as far over as Julie...but 3 months next week. All has gone amazingly well, with really no sexual or urinary sides. Yeah, the sexual sides may come later...but, for now, all is well!
So, good luck. I'll be thinking of you and please let us know how it goes. As a suggestion, maybe you could start a "Duckfan's Brachytherapy Journey" so newbies will see how yours goes along with Julies and mine. There are only a few of us seeds here, so other persepective is welcome.
