Not a nice day today to have experienced that PSA has increased to 0.45 after 3 months of salvage radiation being over
So a bit of a background: After RP, PSA went up till 0.25 in June, then I had radiation on July and August for 33 session - 66 GY - on prostate bed as well as lymph nodes in the pelvic area.
3 months after PSA went up further to 0.45 on the first follow up check.
What is next in anyone's view?
My doctor is wanting me to do another PSA test in January, if it raises further and beyond 0.5, which she believes it will, I should do another pet exam. If anything spotted there eligible for radiation, they will do radiation to that (those) spot(s), but I will go for hormone treatment as well. She said going now for hormone treatment without any body check may mean we lose track of anything that could be till locally treated first with radiation. Does this make sense to you? For me it did ...
Thanks in advance for your comments,
