Just a quick note that I was very ambivalent about my own treatment timing. Couldn't I put it off? Finally, on the morning before my surgery, at my doctors clinic, sitting in a room surrounded by other men and their wives who were also going through this journey, I met a fellow who's PSA had gone from something like 2.5 to 60 in 12 months. When I heard that I was ready to jump off the fence and get on with it. No more hesitation or ambivalence.
Hope you are able to make your decision on treatment however it works for you and that it helps to make you feel peaceful
