Please take your time before making a decision. Your biopsy results puts you in the low risk category. Low risk means that all conventional PC treatment options, including AS, are on the table. Talk to practitioners in radiation and learn the pros and cons of that therapy. Get a second surgical opinion.
I went for surgery. I have no regrets, other than not learning more about
radiation. I've been on this forum since the surgery, and believe I now know the efficacy of the various forms of radiation therapy. I like having all the facts, and not having them is the only thing I'd have done differently.
So, educate yourself, read, listen, learn, discuss. Then make the decision you can live with, and don't look back. I don't.
