my dads PSA went from 182 to 10 in a month, what does this mean? He's in stage IV.

Gina,

I would interpret this to mean that whatever treatment he is having is working well. When is your Dad's next Drs. appt.? I am sure the Dr will be pleased.

Great news,

Roger

His Dr.'s appt was Friday but he's been in the hospital since Tuesday because of a collapsed lung and he can't walk right now because the tumor is putting pressure on his spine. They began a radiation treatment on Thursday to try and shrink the tumor so that he can walk again. He was diagnosed a month ago and has been on a hormone treatment since. I am new to this, thank you for replying!
