@ Tall Allen.
Well I had totally forgot that some of the side effects of radiation can be delayed for months or even years after treatment. I will discus this and my other concerns with my uro guy when I go to have the seeds planted on the 27th. I have already been told that I will have to take something like Flomax after my treatment and they have already started me on a course of alpha blockers that I started taking this week. Unfortunately I am unable to take ibuprofen or aspirin, They both blow my face up like the elephant man.
LoL. There is nothing like a good fart and the smell is only there for the benefit of the deaf.
@ A Yooper.
Hey there Yooper. I got your very nice e.mail and have sent you a reply. Thank you.
Thanks for all your advice and support here and in my old threads. Your advice is the main reason that I am going with LDR Brachy. You are a star, thank you.
Hey there buddy. Thanks for dropping by.
Well I just hope that your hunch is correct as my hunch was about
you. Yes, I was reading your 9 page thread whilst in hospital this week having my mapping done. Only the P-Man can build a thread that big in such a short space of time. I think you must be on a mission to reach your 1000th post by the end of the month. The mods should give you a special award. Maybe a golden walnut!
I just got your e,mail and will send a full reply in the morning if that is ok. It is almost 10pm here right now so it wont be long before I turn in.
Hi Andrew. It is always nice to hear from you.
Well after reading what Tall Allen has said above it looks like my concerns regarding ED could be delayed. Looks like it will be a wait and see situation.
Well the fact that your brother has had good results from LDR makes me feel a little better about
my treatment choice. I hope that he continues to do well.
I am going to take a well earned break when this is all over. In May my son and I will be going to Germany for a few days. We have decided to drive so that I don’t have to go through the embarrassment of setting of the security alarms at the airport LoL
