On 10/27/13 I had a prostatectomy at age 49 and PSA of 12. My diagnosis was Gleason (4+5), epe, Nx0, Dx0, extensive SVI, and negative margins. PSA after prostatectomy was 0.0 for 6 months then a slow rise for 30 months to a level 0.182. On 6/30/16 I started radiation with 37 treatments to prostate bed. I chose not to go on Lupron & Casodex while going through radiation against radiologists recommendation. No reason for me to explain my decision making process, I did that in a previous post 5 months ago. I just received my first PSA test results on 12/2/16. My PSA was 0.06. The PSA is moving in the right direction. The radiologist said PCA radiated cells have a 3 month half life. It appears the radiation has knocked it back more than expected. He says every 3 months the PSA should reduce by half until the PSA hits some nadir point. In 3 more months I will get another PSA test to see where I sit. I have no questions just wanted to post my experience. I know there are people seeking info on Salvage Radiation so I thought I would post. I am a realist and know I may be facing a PSA rise again in the future. I will keep eating healthy, plenty of prayer, running my 15-20 miles per week, taking supplements and living each day like its my last.
