Carlos, let's look at the facts, you have done nothing wrong, and right now you are in a good situation
The prime purpose of your treatment choice was to rid yourself of PC. You had your surger, and despite being a Gleason 8, you are still drawing zero PSA at 18 months. That is a sucess story so far.
Your former URO is beyond rud and unprofessional in what he told you. He can't guarantee you anything, good or bad. Sounds like sour grapes to me.
Glad that he's not your doctor.
Any one that has ever had PC, has a chance of reaccourance. It may never happen to somone, it may happen 1 month from now or 20 years from now, or never.
Some of us, myself included, had good surgery, yet dealing with reaccurance just months after surgery. PC has a mind of its own.
You are doing great, just enjoy living, because either your cancer is gone, or at the least, its in a deep remission . Either way, you are doing fine.
