Has he started Hormone Therapy (HT)?
If so, that is the beginning of treatment and will stop the cancer growing for now, and give time to think through treatment options.
It is necessary to be on HT for at least 3 months before radiotherapy (RT) anyway (makes the RT significantly more effective), although it's not normally necessary for surgery (RP).
With a T3a, I thought RT is usually considered a better long term bet, but there may be reasons your case is different. Sometimes RT (lower dose) is done after RP as a multimode procedure, but then you have to put up with both sets of side effects, in which case RT alone should be considered.
I wouldn't want to sit around for 2 months with no treatment, although PC is usually slow moving and you would probably be OK, but you should find out about the RT treatment, as it might be the more suited one.
