Glad to hear you are doing well. I have a close friend that had the seed implants many years ago and is still doing great.

I had the davinci surgery but always glad to hear of someone having success!

Yep, they sure do. The radioactive seeds irritate the prostate so you need a catheter for a few days. I had mine in for four days.
