Hello and welcome to HW, Pauline.
Another daughter watching out for her day, I always love to see that.
His pathology report does have a lot of seriousness to it. One of two things will probably happen next. They will either watch his post surgery real close, and if they verified reaccurance, then they would want him to have Radiation Treatments. Or, with his report, they may reccomend that he start Radiation as soon as he's well enough from his surgery.
I had my first PSA exactly 3 months after
If you could put his stats at the bottom of your posts, it would help. Go to "Control Panel" at the top of the screen and set up his profile info. It would make it easier to understand his journey so far.
Please keep us posted and ask as many questions as you need.
Several of us have had radiation after our surgeries, I just completed mine 2 weeks ago.
