Sparkey, sounds like your cancer is growing very slowing and also is likely to be local. Radiation may well provide you with a cure.
I know a person that had a recurrence of cancer that was very slow growing. He took a watchful waiting approach. It took 10 years for PSA to get to 10 when he starting SRT. He got the 10 years without radiation side effects, but now it is possble that his prostate cancer is systematic.
It's a dificult decision. good luck. BB
