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.
Re: Any documented cases of post RP uPSA values rising and then plateauing indefinitely at a low lev
You can see my story under Allen Z on this site. I have had a continuing almost linear increase in PSA since failed surgery followed with the usual regimen of radiation treatments. My nadir after radiation was .2 and has slowly increased to about 2.5 or so and sometimes fluctuates lower than back to 2.5, so it seems to have somewhat of a "plateau" effect for the last several years. I have declined hormone treatment several times and continue to wait for it to escalate more rapidly.
