My Husband had the gold seeds implanted last week, and today we went for a follow-up with the oncologist, and to get marked for where they will do radiation, starting next week. They used a catheter and now he is having some bleeding which is making him nerveous. Is it normal to have bleeding afterward?

The doctor should be able to answer that question. I doubt that it is serious. What facility is doing the radiation? I used Jacksonville 19 months ago and am very glad that I chose proton, as is everyone I've spoken to that did the same. There was no pain involved and no side effects. It was like a vacation.
