Recognize some of you from 2 years ago when I first posted news of my husbands pc. That's a good thing. Since Nov/05, with PSA of 26 and gleason 8, he has had a RP. PSA initialy went to 0, didn't quite make a yr before psa rose to .07, then .11, began salvage radiation in Jun 07. 6 weeks after radiation psa was at .19 Radiation oncologist suggested we not have any further psa tests until Apr/08 as it will get us too hung up on the psa numbers.
Has anyone else had any psa experiences with salvage treatment?
