Let's compile a list important questions people should ask their Brachy
doc when choosing a treatment approach. (For the LARP thread, click here
.)Please help add to this list.
- How many patients have you treated who are my age?
- What are the outcomes of your patients that are my age (cancer cure, incontinence, ED)?
- How would you advise me to decide between LARP and Brachy? Which one do you think is likely to have the better overall outcome?
