I commend you for getting a second, third and however many opinions you need to make a good decision for yourself. Kinda wish we had too. My husbands was 3+3 also but his PSA was 4.3. We have talked about it since and I know hindsight is 20/20 but I do wish we had taken alittle more time.
We were so scared, we jumped. Take all the time you need. I think its a very positive approach!
