Hi all, A few of us are in the BCR situation so here is a helpful (but hard to read) paper on the situation when BCR and PSA comes back > ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articl...
I'm not sure what to make of the paper yet, and as there isn't a standard of care the "big" question for me is when to start ADT after primary/secondary treatment failure. Now or a little later?
We know that generally "early and big" is good (which I did after recurrent PSA following initial RALP), but I've also seen some things that suggest waiting a bit longer.
I have low but notable PSA (<.05, 0.15, 0.29, 0.16, 0.29 over the last few months), all after after RALP and adjuvant RT with 18 months of ADT + Zytiga.
Will learn results from from genomic testing and a PSMA PET MRI last week and then meeting with my MO on Wednesday.
Thanks in advance for any insights or reference to research / specialists that may help.
