I'm glad you had a mostly positive experience in my work-land! It's actually fun to read about from the patient perspective (I always make time to take patients aside for 10 mins before we do anything so they're prepared -- but I haven't done brachy in a while).

Let me tell you, the side effects would probably have been worse from external beam as we get a whole lot of the rest of the pelvis too; brachy is super cool at being localised. Although brachy is done in higher doses for shorter periods of time so the lethargy in particular can be more intense.
