Congratulations Halbert on your continued success battling this disease.
Unfortunately my journey more closely resembled Mattamx's, but my case seems so far to have a better outcome...
I have a very similar timeline, except ... The big difference is that you did much better screening than me. That difference in screening may account for your great outcome, and mine not so good.
My GP referred me to a Urologist when my PSA hit 4. The Uro only said that a steady rise is "nothing to be concerned about
." He gave me very little information. When my PSA hit 10 he did a biopsy which "proved" that my prostatitis was nothing to be concerned about
. When I asked what to do next he just said repeat the biopsy, and when I asked how often he planned to do that he left the room.
Two years later I changed Uro's, immediately had an MRI followed shortly by a fusion biopsy, RP, ADT and ART. Probably like Matt, if my Uro had been more forthcoming and if I myself had been more insistent, things may have gone much differently. While Matt is still battling the disease, I am left with copious side effects of treatment. darn the USPSTF.
So for me, anniversaries are nothing to celebrate. But I will celebrate with others who have also had success.
