I had an rp on 7/25/03. 54 years old and psa 4.7. After rp gleason score of 7+ and cancer found on margins. Three months after rp - psa was 0.14 (they said they were getting the psa two ways - the old way of 0.14 and the new sensitive way which equated to 0.04). Psa went (new way) from 0.04 to 0.03 to 0.02 to 0.01 and then went up to 0.04 (old way 0.14). My uro said he was concerned that if it stayed that way we would have to do more test but it went to 0.03. Why does it not stay at 0.01 or lower? I have never had a bone scan or any other test. Do you think this is needed or not necessary because the psa is too low? Any help you can give me is really appreciated.
