I had my prostate removed 3 1/2 years ago when I had a PSA of 5.4. Following the operation my first PSA tests came in at <0.03. After a while it changed to 0.03, then 0.06 and now 0.07.
My doctor said he doesn't do anything until the PSA reaches 0.3. Some of the posts on this forum say that radiation is less effective when the PSA is above 0.2 and I'm almost at 0.1.
Is 0.2 the accepted place to start radiation?
I'm thinking of going to Mayo in Rochester for a different opinion. If someone has a recommendation, I'd appreciate the name of the doctor.
