The guys who've had a brachy boost will be along soon, I hope.
But It's not just a matter of completing IMRT and then having seeds put in. You've already had about
30 treatments, and may have already exceeded the external beam radiation dose that they would add the brachy boost on to. They usually give less than 50 Gy of external beam radiation with it.
ROs who are experienced at brachytherapy are usually different ROs than the ones who do external beam - it's a specialized profession. So if you want to do this, and I agree that with your diagnosis it might improve your oncological outcome, you should talk to a brachytherapist ASAP.
