Does anyone know why the stat's go lower of reoccurrence as the years go past after surgery.
For example my stats are better at 5 years then 10 years cant find anything past 10, is it that they consider PC slow moving? But I would think if I am PSA free at 2 years my chances of PSA free at 10 is better? Since it would show up now that I still have PC after my prostate is removed?
I would think the longer you go out if PSA free the stats would be better? Would be great to have stats of inputting how many years free psa free after surgery to see stats of PC reoccurrenc...
I know stats are just that stats and we are all individuals but just wondering why the numbers go down......
