Ok! You are right, I shouldn't be thinking about
Allen said the same, " I should consider to be undetectable levels".
I was considering my operation a success because the pathologist report had been perfect. This apparent PSA increasing after 18 months was an unfortunate surprise to me.
Now I feel anxious because I was being naive to think that my PSA would be zero forever despite having a high risk of PCa.
My uro said "it's too early to talk about
PSA recurrence". The uPSA test has been used to discover the early PSA increasing and to analyze the PSA velocity. If will be necessary to anticipate any treatment he can do immediately. The problem is the anxiety generated for the uPSA control.
Regarding your situation, I have read some researches that said: even with positive margins , Gleason 7 (3 + 4) or less have much higher cure chance after RT if you compare with Gleason 8 with negative margins. (Searching in Google : "The Natural History of metastic Progression In Men with PSA Recurrence After RP")
Therefore our prognostics are similar. You have had a less aggressive Gleason but the post surgery pathology is slightly worse than mine and, I have had a more aggressive Gleason but my pathology report is little better.
Your Gleason is similar Gleason 6. It doesn't spread fast, so you have great chances of your PCa is fully located in the prostatic bed.
