Fulltit you are not being a smart ***. You are telling it like it is and I appreciate that. The "evils of radiation" is a term I made up based on the docs analysis. I have a friend with the seeds who is 5 years out and doing fantastic. From what I have read, radiation is a great treatment for some men.
The second to last letter in my handle is the letter "L", not "i". There's a story to my handle. My initials are TLT. Guys at work started to call me tilt because I used my initials for my login. When looking around for a handle that no one used back in the early days of the internet I came up with fulltilt but words correctly spelled were already taken. The handle fulltlt wasn't used anywhere and so far every time I have registered on something new it has never already been taken.
Yeah, the uro/surgeon that I went to for my biopsy gave me the same story. After I had made my decision to have seed implants at the Chicago Prostate Cancer Center I went back to the original uro/surgeon for my final appointment with him. When I told
him what I had decided he said, "I do that too", meaning he did seed implants as well. This was after he had told me all the as you call it "evils of radiation".
