My husband was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, Gleason 9, no distant spread. He had rectal cancer 9 years ago and underwent external beam radiation, chemo with rectum/colon resection. Doctors are telling us that options are limited due to this prior cancer treatment. We found one doctor who wants to try hormone therapy with radioactive seeds using Spaceoar gel to protect the rectal area. He said he normally would do these two treatments plus external beam radiation, however my husband can't do the external beam part of it. Just wondering how effective this will be with just seeds. Has anyone tried this approach after having a previous cancer treated with radiation?
