Every man weighs the various options that are available for treating prostate cancer differently. Different side effects, different risks, different hospital stays ... how did you decide on one treatment option over another?
- After much research and advice from my cousin, I went to Decatur, Ga to RC cancer center and had I-125 seeds implanted and three weeks later went back for 7 weeks of IMRT (external beam radiation). I went from a 4.5 PSA and 6gleason score to .1 PSA 5 years later. I have minimal side effects and it was a great experience. It is less invasive than surgery with an equal to or better cure rate. I know this sounds like an advert, but I would do it again, and everyone I met there has expressed the same sentiment. Make sure you explore all of your options before making a decision!
