In 2005 I had a PSA level of 4.0. In 2006 I had the same and a biopsy was recommended. I had this done, 1 out of 12 samples showed cancer. I choose 8 weeks of IMRT theropy, nothing else. About 6 to 8 months after the original treatment, my PSA decreased to about .90 or maybe less. A year ago my PSA was 1.9 and on this past Monday, my PSA was 2.2. Both my family doctor and my previous Oncologist recomended and scheduled a bone scan for 9/22/2010. I also have had burning during urination since the treatment in 2006, and sex feels like fire. I have had a colonoscopy about two years ago and three polops were removed in my lower intestine as there was red blood in my stool. I was taken by surprise at this first diagnosis in 2006 and even more so now at age 61. Doctors to not say much until they have the facts. After reading many posts it is my 99.9% feeling that my cancer has returned, or is someplace else lurking. Is there anyone out there that has had any similar situation and can be honest with me of what I might expect shortly down this road? Am I correct to assume that my prostrate or some other form a cancer has developed since my IMRT treatment 5 years ago? Thank you for the truth, which only God knows anyway.
