Hi Juliet & Carter. Now that one of the most difficult decision in your journey has been made by you guys, you deserve a well earned rest with a good book. I've had the open RP, but have since read many good things about brachytheraphy and IMRT. Although I'm quite contend with my result thus far, had I taken more time and better educated myself about prostate cancer before my RP, I might have chosen that route myself.
Anyway, congratulations and best of luck in your journey.
All the best to both you.
