It appears that you are only 2 weeks out from your surgery. What others have said is correct; until you get that first PSA test post-op the doctors cannot make any recommendations for further treatment. It takes 4-6 weeks for any residual PSA to work its way out of your blood stream; that is why they wait for that first PSA. And they usually do not consider any radiation treatment until your body has done some healing, since the radiation will halt any further healing; as my doctor put it.
I know; this journey always seems to entail waiting. Get a biopsy; then wait for the results. Get a bone scan; then wait for the results. Get the surgery; then wait for the path report. Wait, wait, wait! Sometimes that can be the most maddening part of this whole battle.
I am also a pT3a, and 2 weeks from today will be a year since my surgery. All of my PSA's have been undetectable; so no aditional treatment has been necessary. Unlike you, however, my margins were negative. That can be a good news-bad news situation. With positive margins; if the PSA is still there after surgery, it's a good bet there was leftover prostate tissue in the bed; and adjuvant radiation usually zaps it out of there. In my case; if the PSA starts to rise; I'm probably looking at mets.
So, hang in there. Play the waiting game again, and hopefully your first PSA and each subsequent one will be undetectable.
By the way, I saw your signature in your last post.
