Please..... simple answers only!! I get it that you guys are all wicked smot, and I do appreciate that..... but I seriously can’t handle much above a 5th grade level!!! Well, maybe a dumb 6th grader!!!
I read that you need to reach a nadir (lowest constant PSA numbers) number to effective monitor any PC treatment success. Need to understand the simple logic about this.
Had my annual Urology followup appointment last week and got no answers as I was fluffed off onto this PA. I asked this exact question after discussing IN LENGTH my cognitive decline (put mildly) but I left there retaining nothing. She talked and talked all around it making no sense to me (not her fault...mine) but I’m pretty sure she didn’t really answer me, just made another appointment with the Dr himself in Dec.
So please, please, please, In simple terms and without links, that to me now are mind numbing.........what do I look for going forward?!
So.... since the end of my +/-20mo ADT stint, my numbers are;
Last 3mo Eligard on Nov 13, 2018 / T=18 & PSA=<0.1
June 2019 / T=19 & PSA=<0.1
Nov 2019 / T=107 & PSA=0.1
Mar 2020 / T=317 & PSA=0.2
June 2020 / T=346 & PSA=0.4
Sept 2020 / T=407 & PSA=0.4
What would I prefer to see from here on. Next bloodwork scheduled late Nov 2020.
Thanks in advance
And yes.... I have a brain MRI and another Neuropsychology exam being scheduled. This really does suck!!!
