It's a year out from my Robotic Surgery (Feb 2018)
The last two months I have had a consistent rise in my PSA level. The last month-six weeks in particular the numbers have gone from .15 to .27 to .34. Those are not good numbers for a man with no prostate. I have had 2 MRI's, a Cat Scan, A Bone Scan and a PSMA Pet Scan. (That one is a highly sensitive nuclear scan)
All the scans are clear. No sign of cancer. Still, the radiation oncologist wants to get me on hormone treatment and salvage radiation in the next few weeks. The problem I have is that they want to radiate the prostate bed but they are not sure even if cancer is in the prostate bed. The could radiate that area, then find out cancer has moved to another location.
Anybody in this group know other men in similar situations? Could something else be causing my PSA to rise?
