Good surgeon, and prostatectomy results

I actually like him a lot. He is rather distinguished-looking and very professional in most respects. I would call his surgery to remove my prostate successful as I am 57 and regained most functions in 9 months. We are now following up on my 0.3 PSA which looks like a type of recurrence as it happened in less than 2 years after surgery. I am not sure about this process which may require low-dose radiation. He seems somewhat casual about it and I would prefer to be able to discuss my test results with him after the office visit.
