My husband has had a prostatectomy his original PSA was only 3.4 it rose to 3.6 due to his age his GP suggested he have a physical with a urologist,he had 24 biopsies and all had huge amounts of cells in every one. He had a total prostatectomy almost 3 years ago, he was asked to join a salvage group on a clinical trial which he did, his PSA kept rising from day one of having PSA's post-op on the trial once the PSA reached 2 they began radiation, he then had radiation therapy, 35 doses, his PSA dropped to 0.08, one month after, then next month 0.06, last month it was up to 1.8. We have been told that he most probably has bone cancer in the pelvic region as at his original operation the cells were already out of the capsule although they thought they had a good clearance. They have decided to wait for further PSA testing in December and until the PSA is around 10 to 20 before looking at hormone therapy and chemo.
