I too am a prostate survivor, Ten years ago, now, clear since. My GP was very thorough about annual PSA testing. Once a rising trend was detected, off for a biopsy (positive, but very early stage cancer), then chose surgery.
Surgeon had extensive experience and steady hands, and the clinic does annual blood tests ever since. All clear.
Took around 12-18 months to really recover but am eternally thankful to my GP and clinic for their skill and attention.
Surgery is now generally keyhole/robot (mine was the old 8" scar sort) so recovery times will be better as less invasive.
Don't wait, guys. Get them tests. And thoughts are with you, Chris.
