Based on the  low staging, PSA and Gleason score I would say that Active Surveillance is the best way forward at the moment

Exactly as OhDear! says. Your histology is similar to mine following my TURP. It took 5 years of AS before progressing to a stage that merited surgical intervention. Yours may never progress but the key to Active Surveillance is the name itself. Don't let whoever manages it (GP or hospital) become complacent.
