Try to look at the bright side. You seem to have a manageable case of PCa. I mean that you appear to have an extremely high likelihood that it is contained and that it will NOT come back.
Using your pre-op numbers, I got the results below from the Han tables, which are provided by Johns Hopkins:
Recurrence Probability Following Radical Prostatectomy (by Han Table)
Probability of Biochemical Recurrence|
(detectable PSA level) at 3 years after surgery: 1% (0-3)
5 years after surgery: 1% (0-5)
7 years after surgery: 2% (1-7)
10 years after surgery: 3% (1-9)
I realize these are just stats and every case is unique, but I like your odds.
Keep your chin up and have a good weekend.
