I was fortunate enough to get into the Clinical Trial for the F18 DCFPyL PSMA Pet Scan at NIH. I have had no prior ADT or Chemo ever and my PSA was 0.7 which met the qualification for the trial. (RP in 2011, IMRT in 2015, BCR 02/2018).
Today was day 1 of 2 with the actual PSMA Pet Scan tomorrow. This morning they took blood and gave me an MRI with Endorectal Coil (not fun) and gave me the results at noon.
The MRI was clear showing no involvement in lymph nodes, bone or soft tissue. My CT and Bone scans at Hopkins last month were also clear.
Here is the weird part... Two weeks ago at my regular 6 week blood test my PSA went down to 0.4 from 0.7 and I was shocked to see this but figured it was some sort of anomaly. The NIH lab verified that drop today with a reading of 0.38.
Has anyone else had a PSA drop after a steady upward trend for apparently no reason and without assistance of ADT, hormones, chemo or other medicine?
