Sorry for the temporary setback...it's tough when you have a plan but hit a bump. However, this is pretty standard protocol for proposed brachy patients with larger than 50cc prostates. This should be successful in reducing the size of your prostate and getting you back on track for your brachy. I think JohnT had something similar prior to his brachy and perhaps he will weigh in on this thread. Pls. keep us up to date and best of luck.
