I have had two radiologists recommend hormone therapy with salvage radiation with my PSA at 2.41. My choline PET scan shows only a local re-occcurnence at the prostate bed. A follow up biopsy of the prostate bed locates the concentration of prostate cells in my prostate bed. Markers where the five core samples were taken from the prostate bed were left at the core sample sites. PC was found in one of five core samples. The marker for the core in which PC was found will be used by the radiologist to guide the application of a little extra radiation. (7200 units of radiation in the area of known re-occurnece with 6600 units of radiation to the rest of the target area of the prostate bed). I have appointments with two medical oncologists within the next week. It goes without saying the best chances for no further re-occrence after radiation would have happened with radiation with my PSA under 1. I am where I am with respect to PSA. Other people's experience with radiation treatment with a PSA above 1? Questions for the medical oncologists? Questions for the radiologists?
