My husband went in at 6 weeks for his first PSA after da vinci RP and the Urologist used an ultrasensative test. The reading came back at 0.02 and he says it should be 0.00. He repeated the test and we should know results of that on Wed. I am wondering if anyone could share their experiences with initial PSA results after surgery. The Urologist wants to do 5 weeks of radiation if the PSA comes back elevated again since my husband's cancer was agressive and he did have a "focally positive surgical margin for tumor". What confused me is that in many places people are rejoicing at 0.02 and calling that undetectable..and my husband's brother (also had RP) has remained .02 for 10 years. Please share any experiences or thoughts..
