    Default urine burning year after seed implant

    I am one year and three months past seed implant for prostate cancer. a
    month ago I started burning when I unrinate and going frequently again, just
    like the side effects of the radioactive seeds, but they are long inert. can
    someone advise

    See your family doctor, if that is faster. It most likely is a bladder
    infection. We women do get them more than men. Drink lots of water or
    cranberry juice till you see him to dilute the urine.

    infection

    I think what happens is that the rad, which is long gone, has damaged
    the DNA of the cancer and, secondarily, other rapidly reproducing
    cells.

    The lining of the urethra and colon reproduce rapidly and are in
    die-off mode. The rad-docs balance the dose levels to hit the cancer
    hard, and hopefully spare the other tissues.

    Unfortunately, there is damage to other cells. You feel it on the
    cell-death cycle.

    Cancer's cycle is fast so it dies early, good riddance. Your urethra,
    colon have faster cycle than other cells so they get whacked too and
    that's what you're feeling.

    Talk to your rad-doc and he'll probably say that this is normal, and
    should eventually fade.

    I got the burning at about seeding +18 months. I also had some urgency
    and my pee-stream slowed down a little. I'm at +24 months now and
    doing better but I did pee a couple drops of blood yesterday.

    Between +18 months and now, about once or twice a month, I pee'ed a
    couple drops of blood. This was only in the morning. I mentioned that
    to the Rad-doc and he said that was normal. Lots of blood would be a
    problem but a drop or two was OK.

    How are the erections coming? I'm doing pretty good there.
