Hi to all. My husband will have the hydrogel spacer placed this Thursday in anticipation of EBRT. We’ve been told it’s a simple procedure but does require sedation. The RO told us that the spacer is a hard sell with many of his patients. If it’s a simple, low cost procedure that protects the anus during radiation treatments, why is it a “hard sell?” Now I’m chewing on that thought. The RO was very positive about its benefits. Does anyone have experience with this? What can my spouse expect during and after the gel insertion? Thank you!
