Post RP this year in April my PSA was undetectable (< 0.03). However started with hormonal (Zoladex) in May and then Radiation(Prostate Fossa( in September-completed Nov 7th. Post radiation PSa test done 4 days later was 0.04. Will have another PSA test next week to determine if the previous test was a bump or recurrence .
Has anyone had a similar experience and what was the outcome.have you heard of a PSa bump post radiation-without the prostate? Would appreciate any information/help. Any other tests I should ask for now?
RP Biopsy- Gleason was 9(5+4), one Positive Margin and 1 Cancerous Lymph node(out of the 17 removed) and substantial extra capsular extension-both SV invaded. hence started with Hormonal (Zoladex) and adjuvant radiation (Prostate Fossa-33 x 2Gy each) to reduce chance os recurrence.
