I am going for my 2nd PSA test in two weeks time. I was hoping that its results would indicate how I'm faring after my IMRT. However I now understand that the results may not give me any indication since I had hormone therapy during and after IMRT treatment and that I will have to wait until the effects of the hormone wear off. Then if this is correct. What exactly will the PSA results mean? What is the point of the tests if they do not give an indication of how I am faring. I was supposed to have the hormones for two years. I have stopped them because of the side effects. But if I did take them for two years then I would not have any indication for more than two years as to whether my cancer had been cured or whether it is spreading.
