I would say kiss the surgeon next time you see him. He/she did a great job.
The seminal vesical involvement can be as bad as a posotive margin. The LV invasion is fairly common, and it draws mixed reaction from doctors. It is however, another potential conduit to the outside.
Certainly you will be on 3 month interval PSA's for a couple of years, so you will need to watch it carefully. Some radiation guys would probably still recommend adjuvant radiation with the pt3b.
Glad to hear it went well, and good luck on your journey.
