I dont think anyone can say they are 100% cured because even non pauretics have bladder locks sometimes. I consider myself 99.9% cured though.
Regarding EFT I am surprised that your doctor recommended it. There is no empirical evidence that it is effective for any anxiety disorders. There will be anecdotal evidence of course but then I have had people come to me for CBT who got better for a while after EFT but then relapsed.(these were people with panic disorder though not pauresis)
Independant studies also show that EFT has nothing to do with meridian points and Chi energy. The anecdotal successes are more likely to be due to placebo effect and the tapping ritual may work in a similar way to hypnosis (focused attention and suggestion).But hypnosis generally doesnt help pauresis either. So I am afraid there are no miracle cures.CBT and desensitisation are the best there is. If you have other anxiety problems the GP may put you on an SSRI and this may make the desensitisation a little easier also. I know its hard but keep trying my friend.It can be overcome or at least made a lot milder. Good luck
