I was similar to you as well. Stage 3, 4+3=7 Gleason. Since it had spread (stage 3) it was deemed inoperable because I would still need radiation. I was told radiation on an area after an operation could be harmful. I went on Lupron then had High dose brachytherapy and 25 external beam. I was on Lupron for 24 months. If you stay active and communicate with your doctors – 4 months would not be too bad.

@dmadi61 Thanks for your response. Hopefully my hasn't spread (the MD's feel it is contained to the prostate) The Lupron does concern me though.
