Greetings all, I had surgery in Feb of 2011, Final stage was T2C, with PNI present, the first year psa level stayed at the 0.01 level, year 2 is moved to 0.02.
This past year it moved to 0.03 in August. last Tuesday doctor visit and it is now at 0.05. The doctor moved me back to a 3 month rotation for PSA tests and it was indicated that I might need additional treatment. He also said on the last visit that I cannot guarantee a cure.
The treatment will most likely be radation or HRT. I am trying to plan ahead and want to make a decision, I donot want to rush into this next phase if needed.
The PSA test is the ultra sensetive test or it's called the FREE or TOTAL test. I always get my test at the same lab and hospital. I understand the wait but this test is more of an accurate test.
As I understand the 0.05 is a trigger point for PSA.
