Did not know you had the same results.. :-) which makes one wonder why brachytherapy is not standard ( outside the protocol) therapy. I did email one woman on here recently whose husband did brachy ( in PA I believe) but was not in a protocol and also had the tumor destroyed. This was the first time I had heard of this outside the protocol.
Anyone have any thoughts?? the only thing I can remember the mayo saying was that it destroys other 'stuff' around the area so the patient may eventually need a transplant from the damage alone.. but maybe that is not the worst scenario IF it can succeed in killing the tumor??
If anyone can ask their doc and get back to the board I would really like to find an answer. It has no side effects like chemo or radiation ( that I recall my mother having).
