Good evening everyone. It’s been a few months since I’ve updated my status. But back in April I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I had a Gleason score of 8, 4+4 and a PSA of 11. My bone scan and CAT scan both came back negative, although the bone scan identified a benign lesion on my femur. Neither my surgical oncologist or radiology oncologist feel it’s metastatic (I have no pain or soreness).
As a result I had an RP at the end of July. This past week I had my first follow-up appointment with my surgical oncologist. I didn’t get the news was I hoping to hear, my PSA has elevated to a 24.
My SO doc put me on ADT (bicalutamide). I also have a new bone scan, CAT scan and PSA test scheduled over the next few weeks and then an appointment with a radiology oncologist in early November.
I’m not sure what to expect from from this point on. Any thoughts?
I realize it depends on the test results but I’ve continue to read and follow many of you (Tall Allen, tango, and j-o-h-n, to name a few) and respect everyone’s opinions.
