We meet with an oncologist here at Vanderbilt this afternoon regarding the formulation of a more aggressive treatment of my husband's Stage 4 (metastatic) prostate cancer. Quick recap : PSA 3.6 in April 2017 elevated to 9 by the time he had a biopsy done in June (2017) 12/12 cores positive and Gleason 8. RP (daVinci) preformed on Sept.13, 2017. PSA had climbed to 52 by time of surgery. Bone scans prior to surgery were "clear". They were done in July (2017). Post-surgery pathology showed involvement in two of four lymph nodes. He received first injection of Eligard on Sept.27. Oncologist here at Vandy tested PSA today and it came back at 0.9. He has ordered scans to be done in two weeks, as the ONLY scans Jeff had done are now six months old. Any thoughts ? We are sort of freaked out about the .9. Or maybe it is more accurate.
to say we are bummed. Would love any feedback from anyone on this forum as I have been following you guys faithfully since joining back in Novemeber.
