Riding after cancer treatment

Not sure where to put this thread:

Kind of an odd question, but has anybody had this form of prostate cancer treatment and continued to ride?
Straight question - is it safe to ride while the 91 radiactive seeds are doing their job?

My Doc is saying I can...........but! Apprently the act of straddling something and constant vibration and jostling , be it a horse, bicycle, or m/bike can bugger up the treatment (mine was last week).
I WILL set of alarms if I cross the border. Still have to turn on the light for a midnight pee, I was hoping I would glow in the dark.

It is generally suggested to refrain from any activity that causes jostling (m/c, bicycling, horses) for 4-6 months after seed implantation. This motion could cause seed movement or swelling.

(btw- I'm a radiologist(retired), NOT a radiation therapist, so I would defer to his judgement).
