Something to talk about. 2002 I had an RP done, and my PSA never went to zero. I was at .2, then .3 and for the past 15 years .1 Some doctors say I still have cancel cells and would I like radiation. Some say I still might have a piece of Prostate. Some stay another gland is producing testosterone. Who knows. Lucky I did not seek additional treatment after RP. My margins were clear, and the prostate according to the lab report: PROSTATE ADENOCARCINOMA, GLEASON GRADE 3+3=6, THE TUMOR INVOLVES BOTH SIDE OF THE GLAND AND APPEARS ORGAN-CONFINED – SEMINAL
VESICLES AND INKED SURGICAL MARGINS ARE NEGATIVE FOR ADENOCARCINOMAconfirmed within the gland. SO in summary, the first 5 years I was classified as a biochemical failure. Just want to keep the forum going. I tell my friends about this forum and whenever possible donate. The guys that started this forum and the one that took it over are amazing.
