In brief: Tell us more

The choice of treatment, (between Surgery or Radiotherapy depends on the stage of Cancer.
What is the stage according to your urologist? It is probably stage-3 in which Radiotherapy combined with Anti-androgenic therapy is often preferred over Surgery(Prostatectomy). Give us some follow up info.
