Three weeks ago I underwent the procedure where radioactive seeds were implanted into my prostate. It's called Brachytherapy. I am experiencing some difficulties that were unexpected and would like to know if any of you guys out there can shed any light on the subject. I expected frequent urination but am still having an uncomfortable sensation for the entire length of my urethra during urination. What concerns me the most however, is that I feel like there is a golf ball inside my rectum putting constant pressure from the inside. It's uncomfortable to sit directly and am having to sit sideways to ease the uncomfortable sensations. I don't have a follow up visit until the first of December. I am assuming that this is due to the swelling of the prostate due to the procedure and the seeds. Anyway, I am happy that I made the decision to go with this procedure. I'm just a little uneasy about what I'm experiencing. Any help or support would be greatly appreciated.
