Good news on the negative margins! Did they give you a percentage on the focus point of Gleason 5? I had a similar focus point and the doc hasn't mentioned radiation at all. It seems that these focal point Gleason scores aren't mentioned too often, it may be a more recent thing to include them in pathology reports, or maybe they're just uncommon. I go in for my first post op PSA in 9 days.
