My dad was just diagnosed with Caner. This Thursday we will find out how bad, how long, and treatments. Everyone was really great in telling me how good it was that it was prostate and not something else because it is so treatable. But the thing that really scares me is the elevated PSA number. Now Im sure most of you know that over ten is high. Well his is 250-260. Ive asked people and they keep telling me that it is high but that doesnt necessarily mean that it has spread. Can anyone out there tell me what else can make it go that high? Does anyone out there have a high PSA number and if so what were your results? Do you know someone with a high PSA number and if so what were there results? Please help me Im just dying inside. I dont even know if I can make it until Thursday. Any advice on how to cope would be helpful, Im not eating, sleeping, functioning, I am going through the everyday motions, but have no idea how I am. Im like a zombie walking around.
