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.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
My situation was very similar to yours, although I did not have robotic surgery.
My PSA started going up 6 months after surgery. From my research I came to the conclusion that salvage radiation was better done sooner that later. I went to UCLA and I realized it is important to go where they have state of the art equipment and an experienced team. Because of the fast rise of my PSA it was
recommended that I also do 6 months of hormone therapy. The radiation was piece of cake. The hormone therapy was no fun. Now almost 5 years later my PSA is undetectable.
