I dunno...almost like trading a stomach ache for a headache. Trying to fix blockage of urine flow from BPH with one surgery or have incontinence with the other type of surgery for awhile. Not a pleasant choice no matter what.
With your age, I would have to say, just take the dang thing out and get it over with. Having to go through the one surgery to help with BPH, then several months later have the radiation for cancer doesn't seem any less invasive to me. At least with the prostectomy, its done and over with along with the ability to have a path report afterwards.
Just my .02 worth
