One man’s account of diagnosis and treatment for prostate cancer through low dose rate brachytherapy
Tom McGrath’s story of his experience with prostate cancer — the tests, biopsies, diagnosis, and the difficult process of choosing a treatment.
Tom never suspected he had cancer, until a chance blood test returned an atypical result. He soon found himself in a urologist’s surgery discussing the early stages of the disease.
This book details the brachytherapy procedure Tom underwent, and the long post-op period of medication and testing. A central theme of the story is how he ‘gets on with life’ in spite of a potentially fatal disease.
