I think most people second guess their decision just before surgery. The thing you need to remember is that lots of decisions are made on recommendations and trust. I can't tell if you are worried about
the Dr. or the need for surgery, or that you have overlooked other options. I see the biopsy indicated "one entire side of prostate" was cancerous. This is probably why the doc recommends not waiting long, 'cause if the entire side or lobe of the thing is cancerous, then the likelihood of margin involvement and spread beyond is greater. If you trust the Dr. and agree with his recommendation and you trust his skill as a competent surgeon, then it's probably just pre-surgery jitters that we all have had. If you are unsure of the need for surgery, or feel you haven't considered all the options available besides surgery for treatment, then you are left with a dilemma. That I can't tell you how to proceed. That's just my thinking, no recommendation or suggestion being made.
