Hello SeekingBliss and Welcome,
I'm currently out of town but check in while on the road...I saw your post and knew I had to respond. It seems your husband & mine have very similar stats. For brevity's sake here is our story: myman - Our Prostate Cancer Odyssey - PSA UPDATE
I never thought Don wouldn't be cured and so, the shock of a PSA of 11.8 post surgery was devastating. But, we decided to move forward and do what is necessary to live a full life. I want to encourage you that your husband can do quite well on Hormone Therapy, too. Don has side effects but manages and is one of the busiest people I know!
Please ask whatever questions you need to - the group here is wonderful and you will find much support.
I wish the best for you both and hold good thoughts for you,
