I had 4 fiducials placed today through the perineal. It only took about 3 minutes for the actual placement. On a scale of 1-10 it was a 10.
To make this a positive , helpful post I would suggest you take whatever arm injected pain killer you are offered.
I was accompanied by someone to drive me home and so I was eligible to take the injection, but hearing it was a 2 minute procedure and a topical gel was placed on the area for a full hour before the treatment I assumed wrongly that the pain would be manageable.
I question why none of my health care professionals warned me of the potential pain? I was wondering if anyone had similar experiences? Am I over reacting?
