Hi, my husband is 60 years old and had complete radical prostrate cancer surgery Oct./2002. The Doctor said his cancer was 85% in the prostrate.
Since the surgery he has had two PSA tests done. The first came back at .8 and now the one he got back yesterday was .18. It has doubled in 3 months. The Doctor was surprised of course and now has set him up with an oncologist for a radiation consultation. Evidently there are still cancer cells floating around inside. My concerns as well as my husbands is that it may have spread elsewhere. I would also think that they would have to do cat scans to see where the cancer is. Has anyone else out there had any experience with the radiation in this area? His father died of cancer that started in the prostrate and then went to his bones. We are so stressed it would be nice to hear from others. I have gone through this cancer before with my father and brother both having cancer and passing 6 months apart. One had pancreatic and the other stomach cancer and my mother breast cancer. Thank you
