My husband had RP in May 2019. The RO suggests testing follow up PSA prior to three months can give false levels that it takes 3 months for accuracy.
I have also read it is important to start treatment for advanced prostate cancer within two months of surgery for better results.
We received his Decipher test results and they were worrying. 70% recurrence within 5 years, over 20% mortality in 10 years.
Gleason 7 before and after surgery May 2019
PSA in Dec 2018 and Jan 2019 33+
Surgery revealed spread to bladder neck and 5 of 27 lymph nodes
It is so hard to get any appointments in less than 5-6 weeks so trying to be proactive. Can not fathom waiting as long again as the first round from Dec to May before any treatment for PSA.
