What should I do from here with my prostate cancer?

I've placed my "bio" below. The highlights are the following: PSA prior to biopsy was 7.6; Gleason of 3+4, extracapsular involvement, 50% involvement on right side; Radical Prostatectomy on 12/2016; PSA on 2/2017 was undetectable; PSA 8/2017 .1; PSA 12/2017 .1; PSA 6/2018 .2 Urologist determined doubling time to be six months and recommended Lupron and Casodex which I took from 8/2018-2/2019; From 8/2018 - 10/31/2018 I had 39 radiations; PSA, upon finishing radiation was .1; PSA 6/2019 was undetectable (MY TESTOSTERONE WAS BACK TO NORMAL) or less than .1; and most recent PSA in November 2019 was .1

 

I'm not sure what that means. AM I going backwards? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
