Good to hear that. Radiation is not an option I am considering due to my young age, historically prostate cancer patients can develop bladder infections and or cancer later down the road from the chemo/radiation treatments. The surgeon I am leaning towards works primarily with athletes and has a great track record of keeping nerves intact.
