Ask Your Own Medical Question

I'm sorry that you needed Brachytherapy. Was this for a prostate or urinary bladder problem? What is your age?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Prostate age 52

This could be caused by a small blood clot that formed as a result of the therapy. Do you have any pain when you urinate? May I suggest you schedule an appointment with your Urologist. You will most likely need Cystoscopy to look at your Prostate gland and bladder. If you are having any urinary discomfort, purchase over the counter AZO a urinary analgesic/anesthetic and use as directed until you can be examined. This is a common post-procedure occurrence and should not cause alarm. Forming and passing blood can happen 6 months or longer after the procedure. This is not a sign of Prostate cancer.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
