My husband began this process in 2016
PSA 2.7 -- Gleason score 4+
After 40 radiation treatments (opted not to remove the prostate) and Eligard shots every 3 months for 18 months his PSA began to rise. Aximum scan showed mets to pelvic area and retroperitoneal. Began seeing MO Mt Sinai NY who suggested 5 and 5 radiation txs to each area. Completed the radiation treatments, changed Eligard to Lupron and added Xtandi beginning mid-May. In July he had a slight rise in PSA (1.27 to 1.68) due to radiation per MO. In August he trended down (1.22) Yesterday PSA went to 1.68 He is upset. MO stated it was a small tic up and he feels comfortable waiting the 6 weeks till next blood test. I'm not saying I disagree. but it's always a waiting game. Waiting for the show to drop. In the meantime, I am wondering what you all think about the up tick in his number......it never goes low like so many of you share (0.1, 0.2) etc.
0.00 - 4.00 NG/ML
