I received treatment for prostate cancer a number of years ago . The procedure of implanting radio active seeds was done. In may of this year I received a letter from DR. Russell requesting I participate in in a study titled "comorbidities and Sequelae of Prostate Brachytherapy. I agreed to dothat but have never received any further information about it. On May 24th this year I called again. I feel I have some useful input. Rex Cochran 225 755 8193. Thanks. I would definitely recommend DR. Russ
