Hi, I've been searching all day for some information on the radiation burns that have occured in my father one year after having the seed implants. He started having alot of pressure and pain associatied with urinating and having a bowel movement about6 months ago. The doctors were treating him for hemoroids, until they decided to do a colonostopy because he was in an usual amount of pain. They found several severe radiation burns in his colon, and again because the pain was so severe he was scheduled for the burns to be cauterized. They did the surgery to try to cauterized the burn and found a massive amount of scar tissue not only in the colon from radiation burns. He is now home and in agonizing pain. He passed out and was rushed to the emergency room because the pain he is in is too much to handle, his legs give out on him and his body shakes uncontrollably. They are sending him to a pain management doctor. Has anyone else had this problem after having seed implants? Any reply's would be greatly appreciated, he has lost alot of weight also. The doctors don't seem to know what to do, they just keep saying "it will take time to heal". My father is the toughest guy I know and in my 32 years have never heard him complain and to see him in such distress is hard to handle.
