At last appointment our question was “ how do we monitor his cancer” and we were told to listen to his body. By George, that isn’t good enough. We have fought this cancer aggressively to try and stay ahead of the game, and now our tool for keeping things in check is to listen to his body? Background in a nut shell, psa of 2.76 in April of 2015 but Dre positive. Led to prostectomy in July . Found Gleason 9, extracapillry extension, and lymph node involvement. 6 months of eligard and 39 radiation treatments. We now have had 6 nondectable psa scores. So feeling pretty good but knowing that his psa scores are not a very good indicator of his cancer we wanted to know how his cancer would be monitored. Hearing that we should just listen to his body and continue to get psa Numbers feels so passive. Also through some research , found that high Gleason and low psa cancers can be very aggressive. We have asked about scans but they tell us that rising psa indicates the need for a scan. My hubby can not have a mri because he has an implanted defibrillator. Are we really suppose to just sit and wait for the cancer to get large enough for him to feel it in his body? He is a healthy active 61 year old male who watched his dad die in a lot of pain from prostate cancer that went into his bones. We want to do everything we can to stay ahead of this. Thoughts?????
