PSA jumped to 16.9 from previous test of about 6.
Oct. 2009 biopsies showed cancer in one section of 1 of 12 samples. Previous biopsy showed nothing about March 2008.
RP Thanksgiving of 2009, Gleason upgraded to 9 from 8 after surgery, was in the margins. Had pulmonary embolismims in both lungs about a week home from surgery.
Radiation treatments Spring, 2010; 37 in total focusing on prostate bed.
PSA tests from after surgery showed non-detectable levels until 01-31-11 when it went to 0.04.
Currently waiting for next PSA test in two weeks. Not exactly a happy camper now, hopefully it was just a bad test. If additional treatment is needed, I hope to kick the disease in its ass.
Need a place to vent etc.
