i have seen 2 doctors so far. the 1st told me that the
medical staff he belongs to agrees that we have to wait. the
2nd doctor who is the one who operated me 5 years ago( in Dec 2011) told me to
have a RMI. i did it. the imaging shows that i have a little
local recidive 10*4mm. he told me that i should undergo a
hormonotherapy and a radiotherapy as soon as possible for
fear it grow.
i didn't have any treatment at all. i saw different doctors actually. The last one doubted the reading of the IRM. He had it read by another specialist and the re-reading asserted "there's no recuurrence.". I couldn't understand.. i waited and yeasterday i nchecked my psa; there's no detectable psa at all.
my psa is falling again... less than0.07, it is undetectable. i am very happy.
is it common this rising then falling?
that is all. how and why is beyond my grasp! all i was told: there's a mistake in the first reading.
what about the rising psa???
what do you think?
