Special considerations

Close, prolonged contact (sitting in the lap) with young children should be limited to 20 minutes per hour for the first two months after the procedure. It is safe to sleep in the same bed if your partner/spouse is NOT PREGNANT. If your partner/spouse is PREGNANT, separate sleeping arrangements will be necessary for two months. If you have other questions, please call your radiation oncologist or urologist.
