I started a prostate brachytherapy support group in November for men who have had or who are considering brachytherapy. 36 men met on Zoom, providing peer-to-peer support, with those recently treated or considering treatment able to ask questions of those further along the road. Some key topics of the discussion were what PSA bounces look like in terms of levels and timing after treatment (a particular feature of brachytherapy which isn't well understood), the significantly different regimes for using Tamsulosin after brachytherapy, and strictures.
We cover both LDR/seed/permanent brachytherapy, and HDR/temporary brachytherapy.
We will meet again on Zoom this Thursday (14th) in the evening.
If you are a brachytherapy patient or considering brachytherapy, and would like to join, please email me well beforehand:
