My husband has now hit the 10 days mark of this low dose brachytherapy. A total of 114 seeds were implanted in his prostate. He initially experienced frequent urinary trips to the bathrooms which were resolved by taking two Flomax a day. Now that his trips to the bathrooms have been greatly reduced, he is now experiencing sharp burning sensation (UTI like symptoms) when going to the restroom 10 on the scale of 10 pain wise. His doctor told him that the burning sensation was normal after Brachy, but it has been 10 days now since the surgery and he is in extreme pain. Has anyone on this forum experience severe burning urinary symptoms shortly after brachy. Is there anything I can get the doctor to prescribe him besides ibuprofen?
Another issue is that of fatigue. My husband has always been very athletic, but he's been extremely tired lately. I have read of people going to work a day or two after surgery, but this definitely not the case for him!
I really could use some guidance as to what to do next. I'm planning on taking him to the doctor tomorrow to maybe have them prescribe him something for the burning.
