I had my prostate removed two years ago The PSA was undectable for a while and went back to a 3(June 2011) from being undectable.The Uro sent me to a radiation specilist. So I agreed to adjuvent therapy 39 times to hopfully get teh psa dpwn what gets me is the doctor in the radiation clinic said there would be a 50 to 40 percent chance of geting any cancer cells.So its hit and miss.(hopfully hit) So the big question is for those who have done this prostate bed radiatione did it bring down your PSA.
2nd question is would it be fesable to get another biopsy of the prostate bed.I think its a waste of insurance and copay money if you really don,t know if cancer cells are present.No one can tell you while your getting IMRT treatment if its really sucessful or not .
