Hey Fellas, so it seems my journey continues. Last month was my 3-month post-surgery check-in. Had A PSA Level of 0.7. I consulted 3 oncologists and was advised to do a very extensive PET Scan and 2 MRI's. Which I did on Monday. Before my scans I did some bloodwork. The results are as follows...over the past month my PSA has risen to 0.98, and the PET Scan showed a small spot (could be PSA/PC activity) in 1 lymph node on the right side of my Pelvis. 2 oncologists are advising that I do a biopsy of the lymph node and if it tests for cancer cells, my options are to RT and 2 years of HT, which I am not looking forward to. Another option is surgery to remove the lymph node and possibly radiate and do a shorter term of hormone therapy. While I am grateful to be out in front of my situation, thanks to many of you on here, I am feeling a little sad and frustrated that this situation has once again taken another turn. If anyone has had a similar experience, I am eager to know more. In the meantime, while for biopsy to be scheduled I am going to continue to stay in my life, i.e.- go to the gym, manage my business, be a Dad to my children and a husband to my husband...lol Thanks for reading my rant, and may we all continue on the road to a healthy cancer-free body.
sounds like a pretty even-tempered rant to me under the circumstances, Dreamweaverman, no apology needed! be wishing you the best of luck....
Thanks Jim! Needed to get off chest.
