Wow, love the docs hit and run words given to you, nothing like quality time that you paid the tab for and should be getting. Billymac and others gave you some great info. This in between time of not knowing I like to call it : 'limbo land' or the Twilight Zone effect of PCa...you are in a world that is foreign to you and reality seems fictional in this whole mess. Reality and unknowns meet somewhere beyond the dimension of mind and space and time (no I am not Rod Serling, liked the old episodes thou). Learn everything you can is a suggestion, because these future episodes are all to real and we patients are the method actors, this reality show is unparalleled. Question everything as you look it all over, there aren't a bunch of retakes or stunt guys in these series. Best to you going forward, there are all kinds of possible treatments should you need them and recommend if you need them seek multiple opinions and learn all you can, so you might pickup on heavy bias, agenda or b.s...as they exist in this mix. As a fellow guy my guess is you would like to know reality and truthfulness on this as much as possible and not alot of glossed over sweet talk and anybody herein can understand the scariness with unknowns and dealing with this. My current Twilight Zone episode is almost year 9 now, you can see my stats...your stats probably were way less and better than where I started. Hey I still have a sense of humor even though I know whats coming down the road, someday in my particular situation. Your situation is unique and different as all cases of this actually are, I don't believe you have to panic or anything like that if that helps you some. Learning more can only help you with possible choices and decisions.
