Get yourself to some RO's that may specialize in SBRT, HDR Brachy and LDR Brachy. Get an understanding of radiation beyond what your most-likely-biased urologist will tell you so you can make an educated decision.
While the advise above is good regarding speaking to radiologists to become better informed, remember those RO's are JUST as likely to be as biased as any urologists or surgeons you speak to. A FACT, sometimes lost in the never ending debate about
different treatments. BTW, I've had surgery, radiation and hormone treatment. None are a picnic!!
I know you're going to choose the best path for you Warren. Best of luck on the journey.
