I was diagnosed with PSA 289 in mid January 2019 with 2 mets on my right ribs, my right iliac and possibly on lymph node in pelvis. I got Lupron shot Feb 5th and began Zytiga/Prednisone about end of March. I also tightened diet from vegetarian with cheese, bread and carbs [pasta & potatoes] to vegan, leafy organic greens, nuts and some organic fruit for diet but no potatoes or bread etc.. I take Curcumin, and calcium supplements. I lost 20-22 lbs., exercise lightly and am aiming to reduce stress [easier said than done].
My PSA scores have come down as follows
PSA, 289.8 01/10/2019
PSA, 8.8 03/05/2019
PSA, 2.6 03/15/2019
PSA, 0.8 03/29/2019
PSA, 0.4 04/12/2019
PSA, 0.2 05/10/2019
QUESTION: The last couple of weeks I've had more stress than normal. Beginning Sunday 5/12 my ribs feel like they're acting up again, yet the PSA test taken 5/10, two days before the tenderness in my ribs, shows PSA down. Any ideas?
NOTE: Based on the Curcumin exchange on here a bit ago, I removed the Curcumin from my morning supplements for the 4 days prior to the last PSA test but not prior to any others.
