So glad I have this board for information and support. Just found out my dad's PSA went from 14 to 19 in the last month. It continues to escalate and the only treatment he has left is chemo. Fortunately he's not in too much pain but he is uncomfortable. My dad's Prostate Cancer is in his spine and pelvis, when he was first diagnosed he was in horrific pain, I am worried that could return with the continued elevations in his PSA. His doctor says not to be too concerned until the PSA actually doubles in month's time. Seems to me at that point it would be very aggressive. I am just feeling so helpless as how to best support him. I have been just honoring all his choices and trying to keep it real, but feel I should be doing more.....
Health & Peace to All,
