So as I go down the path of trying to determine the "best" option to treat my PC, I am now researching HDR Brachytherapy. I would appreciate any input as to anyone that has either gone this route, or decided not to.
My stats are as follows:
55 years old, 5'11" 190#'s and in excellent condition, until the PC diagnosis of course....
PSA increased from 3.8 to 5.8 over the course of 3 years.
Biopsy on 6/27/12.
Results = Gleason 7 based on 3+3, 3+3, 3=3, 3+3, 3+4, 3=4, 3+4. 22 grams, TC1 (2nd opinion has confirmed all of this)
I am scared S#&*less of having a prostatetcomy, and am trying to learn more about HDR Brachytherapy. Anyone that has any experience, opinions, etc I would love to hear from you. . . .
