i haven't posted for awhile because i have been getting tests done. just return home from the oncologist. to bring you up to speed i had a r/p in 2003 at54 yrs. since then psa has been rising slowly. post op. psa was .01 and in 7 and a half years risen to 5.1. i got the results back from a bone scan and MRI pelvic scan. bone scan was negative. MRI was done with and without contrast fluid. MRI was negative. i also had a cell search circulating blood test for cancer cells. results=negative. so i am scratching my head wondering why my psa is slowly rising. the onocogist said this is not uncommom. she is now refering me to a radiologist oncologist to see what his advice will be for my next step. oncologist had no answer for me.
