They usually want to wait at least 3 months after surgery to start radiation to let you heal up. You didn't mention anything about
hormone therapy being started. I would think that would be recommended. You can start that anytime, and it shoud stop any progression that might be going on...plus it should weaken any PCa cells in the area so radiation can have maximum impact.
Hang in there!
