With a G7, particularly if JH confirms the 3+4, you should be go to go with monotherapy--either RP or RT. Make sure to check out the various flavors of RT (external or brachy--and within brachy SBRT/LDB/HDB)--and understand that RT has a breakdown within for each of the subspecialties.
I'll repeat something that I experienced--and many guys here have reported--that when you have the consult with the specialist that is for you, you'll know it. It's a gut thing. You'll leave relaxed. It really does happen. And it's not always about the statistics--it's about being at peace with the person you're with.
I'll also comment on Jasper's comment: I had RALP, and it was probably 6 months before I physically was 100%. One of the biggest challenges was being around people who had this idea that it should have been no more debilitating than a hernia repair or an appendectomy--including my boss. Don't let anyone kid you, RALP is major surgery. OTOH, lots of guys have reported on how RT has sapped their energy.
