Your first step should be to get an advance scan, Either the approved Auxumin scan Or one of the PSMA pet scans that are in trials. Your PSA it should show where the cancer is. With that information you can talk about
deciding on whether to treat with salvage radiation or a more systemic treatment.
As far as your question goes yeah, Uro should’ve made sure that you were testing regularly if he was going to pass you off to your GP and the GP should’ve known to test based on your history.
Water under the bridge. Whether you want to make it a malpractice suit is up to you. But you should at least admonish your GP letting him know that you know that he did wrong. Maybe it will scare him into not doing it to somebody else
