Prostate Cancer Survivors






This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer.
There are only four rules:

  • No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Elevated PSA after surgery

One of the things that is of great concern to men who have surgery is the PSA level after surgery. It is expected that there should be an undetectable level of PSA since there is no prostate gland and when all is said and done, although other glands DO produce PSA, this is usually in minute quantities.

However some men find that they have an elevated PSA after surgery although there are no other signs of prostate cancer. If this is of interest to you, you may care to view the excellent thread on the subject in this Forum at Explanation for nondecrease in PSA despite prostatectomy? As it started in October last year, you may miss spotting it if you have chosen to view the Forum in Threaded format.

The discussion has continued on The New Prostate Cancer InfoLink site and is well worth reading

All the best

Thanks for this link Terry.

Re: Elevated PSA after surgery

We were told that right after surgery your PSA would still be high you should not expect to see a decrease soon after . Take another PSA after 4 months after surgery and it should be better. good luck
