I finished IMRT on April 1. I had lab work that we scheduled before my recurrence and IMRT treatments. Lab work order contained a PSA among other tests. I have been told that the figure will be (even more) unreliable for a year or more as it will bounce around after radiation. That being said, the PSA came back at 0.04. If I'm going to discount a PSA score, I'd much rather discount one this low than one that may have been higher.
