As a result of psa in the .27 range for last 3 months, all my doctors (3 surgeons and 2 radiation oncologists), have recommended 3months on orogovyx( a new adt oral pill) and 36 radiation treatments. I have agreed to this starting tomorrow. What does the group think of this approach.

I do not understand why you are taking a treatment approach like what you have described when your PSA is .24. I think you should talk with your urologist and consider active surveillance and what he your PSA every 3 months. I believe you could go many years before needing radiation and they may likely have something much better in 5 years. Once you do radiation you don’t have many alternatives. I would consider FLA it could possibly buy you 5-10 years then you make another treatment decision.

With PSA of .27, why do anything but AS
