I am 48, stage III, bilateral seminal vesicle invasion, positive margins, and 4 years into a durable remission. That of course means I was 44 when the games began.
I elected to not wait it out and took on the Dam the Torpedoes attitude with therapies. I took on adjuvant radiation after my surgery and I also did 28 months on hormonal therapy. Currently i am not on any therapy and my plumbing works very well. My PSA history after the RP has been a story of zeros...
I hope for the same good results for you, too.
