Hello Emma and welcome to the site
My husband also went on AS for a year at the end of which his PSA had crept up a bit so when he was 72 it was decided to go for low dose brachytherapy.
Mart hasn't reached that stage yet and at 48 I think he is wise to leave things as they are until such time as a decision needs to be made.
During AS he will be under the hospital's care and as soon as there is change the will know. They obviously agree that he is suitable for AS.
Try and relax about it. Hard to do I know but at this stage of your lives you need to be getting on and enjoying it.
If Mart is a good candidate for AS then he will also be a good candidate for most of the treatments currently available and AS gives you both time to assess your lives and what you want to get out of it .
I suppose what I'm saying is Don't Panic. Just because the word is cancer doesn't mean it's the end of your world.
Keep posting if it helps you come to terms with the situation, but I'm sure as that as time goes on you will relax about it all.
