If a person has the prostate removed, and no mets, then where is the cancer located?
hopefully in the prostate bed and that's why you want to initiate SRT as soon as possible. if a surgeon is going to remove a guys prostate gland one selling point is the "back up plan". yet time and again i've seen the disease go systemic while the doctor either ignores red flags, futzes around with yet more stupid, time-delaying tests or maybe just cannot simply admit that his surgery did not work.
at this point i would fire this doctor and hire the first onc who would give me a shot of firmagon and set up SRT.
