My husband underwent a Prostatectomy 3 months ago. We are from the UK, but we had travel plans to come to Florida before diagnosis, so decided to go ahead with our plans following the surgery anyway. Our surgeon in the UK requested that we get a 'Super Sensitive PSA Test' at the 3 month mark, which is around now and email him the results. I have called two clinics to inquire about having the tests done, but neither understood what I was requesting and said they had never heard of a "Super Sensitive PSA Test". They only offer PSA Tests.
Can anyone tell me if you call it something different here in the USA? Perhaps the terminology is different? The surgeon specifically said to make sure it was a "Super Sensitive" not a regular PSA test.
Any assistance in terminology would be greatly appreciated.
