Raheeb - Just some thoughts...there are tables that will give you an idea of recurrance (I believe at MSK site) and I understand why the question but like everything else with this disease statistics are only that. Your post PSA is perfect and it sounds as if your recovery from surgery has gone very well. Now I may be wrong (others will address it if that's the case) but since you have 0 PSA at this time it's hard to say if your PSA will EVER rise. You've already experienced the feeling of waiting for the "next bloodwork". To say it's difficult is an understatement. A positive outlook AFTER surgery is important also...not rosecolored glasses but you have good stats to base a positive outlook on!
Wishing you all good things,
