I'm looking for a few knowledgeable opinions.
10/08 PSA 5.8 Biopsy 5/8 cores Positive, Gleason 4+3
RRP 11/08 Path report 80% Gleason 4, negative margins, 12 pelvic lymph nodes clean, pushing up to but not through capsule as reviewed by Tumor board. One nerve bundle intact, T2c, N0.
Ultrasensitive PSA results:
Seems to me like a steady tick up, the next uPSA test should be very telling. And yes, hard not to be concerned at the steady progression. I have not heard from my Uro Oncologist yet but my guess is they will tell me it's undetectable and retest in 3 months. I believe their threshold is 0.10 before taking any next steps.
Thoughts? How do I keep my head in a happy place? I am a fit 52 yr old professional with a great, busy life. Tough not to get distracted. Plus, I have lots of experience with PCa from my Dad so I know too much about the potential road ahead.
