I highly recommend Dr Mohinzadeh at the Lahey Clinic. Very skliled at davinci surgery and nerve sparing.
But a 3+3 is not too bad, not aggressive. You probably have options of radioactive seeds or focused beam radiation too.
They ALL have side effecs, study well before choosing.
I am 58, and decided to have the surgery to get the darned thing out of there. Too young to just wait and chance it spreading to the rest of my body. If I were 68, I might have chosen differently. You at 47, if you wait long enough without doing anything, you probably have good odds to die of the prostate cancer.
As I am sure you already heard, if you have the surgery and I does not get it all, THEN you can still have follow on radiation. You can not do it the other way around.
But seriously, with the surgery comes months of wearing diapers and NO sex for a long time (BTW, get laid as much as you physically can over the next few months!).
