thanks lads
compiler
with the positive margin my surgeon got me to see a  radiation oncologists who did a ultra sensitive psa  and it came back (0.07 detectable)
so he recommended radiation plus over hear it takes 7 to 10 working days to get psa results 4 to 6 months to get a Hospital appointment
Have a great cruise
