Surgery to remove prostate due to cancer occurred March 2012, two PSA test later revealed a score of .001 which was excellent. Just had a PSA test and it is now .4. Doctor tells me I probably have a recurrence of prostate cancer. Somehow some cells most of stayed behind.
My Gleason score at time of prostate removal was a 7, margins were clear and I was given probability of cure of 97%.
Obviously now very concerned, just went and had a PET Scan done though early I know just to see if the Doctors can spot any metastes in the bone. Maybe to early, Doctor did rectal check and found only scare tissue no tumers. Tells me we should do another blood test in 3 months and see what is going on then. He tells me possibly targeted chemo but we most first find what to target if not possible hormone therapy.
Comments, thoughts what next?
