I am assuming you went straight to radiation because of your very high psa, the gleason 8, and a stage t3 situation. I would seem odd to me that they would want to do any kind of surgery now that your PSA is back on the climb. It's not like you had a low grade PC to start with and the radiation didn't work. Is there any more you can explain in your situation to help us to understand.
