I didn't really comment on "can only be answered by your radiation team". You're right about that and once they get the necessary info from the brachy team I will have another discussion with that EBRT team. Of course they do brachy at that center, too, and so they can shed a great deal of light, I hope. Since they are not involved in the previous steps they are more forthcoming. A bit of defensiveness by the urologist and the brachy cancer center. I may get replies here that the Gleason 5+4 is not consistent with the PSA scores (and prostate volume….). I know that. When I mentioned that, one doctor thought I was doubting the biopsy but I was just leading in to the point that my treatment was based on the Gleason whereas all the other metrics would indicate a grade 2-something and plus people would ask me about what stage or what grade and I was just trying to get to where I could place myself on these scales since people would be concerned and want to know. And regarding the number of seeds, they didn't understand my concern. They though I was complaining about having to pay for unused seeds. I knew full well that even if the whole process were cancelled for any reason that there would be no refund. My question was, and is, is having 38 or 42% extra seeds normal? Do they only come in packs of 20? That sort of thing. But I do think I have a good chance of getting answers from the EBRT team.
