Hi, Dread. We're there with you. Thought we'd breeze in, get it out, and be done. Not so. Waited anxiously for first PSA after a very serious upgrade. It did fortunately come back as undetectable even with what we knew to be a few escaped cells into fatty tissue. Just two days ago, the doc throws out bladder neck involvement and, now, a 30%-50% chance of return. And the hits just keep on coming.
However, because PSA is undetectable, he does not recommend anything other than a six-month check. In know Jeb/John is having to seek more aggressive options. And Sterd (where are you) is also in a similar boat.
Your next steps will likely be based on the PSA numbers. Another waiting period for that testing, but then you'll know where you stand. Hang in there.
Husband age 65
