    Procedure or Surgery

    Radium seed implant may have stopped the early cancer, but almost three years later still have frequent-urination problems and also now have impotence. A neutral and a negative trade-off for something I most probably would have died with, not from.

    Went as Expected: Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
