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.
I think we communicated on the Cyberknife site during your treatments. I was starting my treatments in december. Pre treatments PSA 5.7, 3 mo. 2.4 , now just got 6 mo. at 1.7. So your 9 mo test is 300 % higher. Please let us know as soon as you can and hope you get some clarity from your Dr.
Glad you're getting some good PSA numbers there. Keep it up!
I saw my RO earlier this week. He thinks my spike is either a PSA "bounce" or perhaps there's still cancer there. We're going to check the PSA again in a few months and go from there. If it's high again, we may do some image scans.
I spoke with another RO who is an acquaintance, he thinks it's simply a spike and will go back down, but we'll see.
