Hi Rinehart. I had HDRBRT on the 21st of June, and if it wasn't for the general anesthesia, I would have gone about my regular day as soon as I woke up after the procedure.
LDR is a little different, in that they leave behind little radioactive gifts, but otherwise, it's a fairly similar surgery so you should have few to no issues.
Be fore warned though, it hurt like the dickens when they yanked out the catheter in my case, and I yelped for 24 hours every time I had to urinate, but by day 2 all was normal.
FloooooooMaxxxxxx is your friend!
You'll do fine I am certain. Happy for you that your treatment plan is coming to fruition!!
