History: 60 year old man. Rising PSA 11.5 years ago, two biopsies to finally find prostate cancer. Presurgery PSA was 11.8, gleason score was 3+4 (7). Prostatechtemoy fall of 1998. Post surgery complication has been primarily incontinence. Open bladder neck, two Contingen injections to try to close it up. Male bladder sling 2001 that was not successful as soon as I returned to exercise walking. About 2003 resorted to using a penile clamp along with half pads. This is not completely successful.
PSA remained at <.1 for a few years. Rose to .2 in 2004 and up one tenth per year until .5 Dec. 2008. April 2009 hit .7 That is when primary care referred me to urologist. Did not know was in chemical recurrence until then. Had bone scan, MRI for suspect places was negative. Pelvic/abdomen CT didn't turn up anything. Was referred to local cancer center. Saw the chemical specialist first. Referred me to his radiology partner. The thought is (no concrete test) that the cancer is in the prostate bed. It was recommended to treat with 37 lower dose radiation treatments.
What do you think....is this fellow following a good course of treatment?
