You aren't on watchful waiting (there would be no hormone therapy, nor radio therapy planned). You are on an active treatment plan, which starts with 3-6 months hormone therapy, before doing radio therapy - a very common course of treatment.
What hormone therapy drug is he on?
I got a 3-month (10.8mg) Zoladex implant a couple of weeks ago without any problem, that was injected yesterday.
Having the 1-month one shouldn't matter, providing you have it again in another month. Normally the 1-month is just used as the first injection in case you can't handle it for any reason, before they switch to 3-monthly.
It's not clear to me if the "doctor" you are referring to is your consultant, or your GP.
It's time you had another PSA test, and they aren't expensive for the NHS. Given your upcoming doctors appointment, I would suggest you try to get a PSA test done a week before, so they have the result to hand. You might be able to arrange this by contacting a nurse beforehand to get a blood test form, either at the hospital (a Macmillan nurse if you have one assigned, or oncology nurse otherwise), or at your GP. If you have it done at the GP, make sure you go and get the result, because your consultant might not be able to access the GP's records (mine can't).
By the way, avoid cycling, horse riding, and sex/ejaculating for a few days before the PSA test, or you will get a misleadingly high result. Also, if he has a urinary infection, that will also raise the result. GP/nurse can test for that with a dip test. (Might be testable in a pharmacy like Boots too - don't know for sure.)
