I am consulting Dr.s about my treatment options and learned of two radiation options.
Calypso external beam alone was one of the suggestions from CTCA. The other was LDR BT with 35 days of IMRT from RCOG. Naturally both Dr.s were confident of their approach and claimed each had it's benefits in regards to lower risks of side effects.
So I guess my request is at this point is if you have experience with Calypso or LDR BT w/ IMRT please share. Is Calypso alone strong enough? Is LDR w/ IMRT too much for my T1C with Gleason 7, PSA 1.8.
Thanks for the feedback.
