PSA went consistently down after IMRT
from 7 to 4 to 2 to 2 to 1.5 and last week went to 1.8.

Am I in Trouble?

I made an appt with my General Practioner, Urologist, and Onconolgist.
Any ideas on what they might say?

Not sure if I like 1.5 to 1.8 in 3 months?

GP said he will put me on antibiotics and then test again.

According to Scardino's book, PSA numbers can bounce around by 30% from day to day "for no apparent reason." So you might want to have a retest. I dunno what antibiotics would do.
