Hi, I had a radical prostatectomy in oct of 06. the pathology report indicated a gleason score of of 8 with invasion of both seminal vesicles and involvement of the bladder neck margin. I started lupron shots in dec 06 and radiation treatments in jan 07. the rad treatments ended in march of 07 and the lupron shots ended in may of 07. for the next six months my psa levels were less than 0.1 in oct 07 my psa rose to 2.3 and by nov. had doubled to 4.6. i have been back on lupron with the addition to casodex since dec 07. in june my psa was 0.05 and is now at 0.35. my dr. did not seem concerned about the jump and said come back in 4 months. has anyone else had their psa rise while on lupron/casodex and should i be overly concerned like i am.?
