To the bed of ...: Your condition is rising psa after definitive rx with radical prostate removal, which is relatively common in up to almost 1/3 after such surgery. The plan to radiate is termed as salvage radiation under assumption of local recurrence after updated imaging study shows no suspicion for metastasis. But no spread as reported in imaging studies doesn't mean absolutely no microscopic metastasis.
