Rosanna: I am unable to respond to the freezing method;
as I have not heard much about it. I do know that my husband had the seed
implants followed by pin point radiation and the only problem he had was
constipation. Here I was so worried about him as he had it done away from
home. When he returned he looked so much younger. To date it has
been most successful he was a Gleason 7; which is a bit high. It is good
you are researching and good if he is being treated at a top notch cancer
center. Wishing him luck, your friend, lillian By the way success
rate is 90%-20years.
Hi! I have a relative who has been
diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. His physicians want to do
radiation. The Cancer is in stage T2. We have heard of both
seeding and freezing. Which of these treatments has the least side
effects, is the safest and most reliable, and which has the greatest success
rate. He has spoken with someone who had the seeding but we are still
looking for opinions? Thanks so much!
