On July 3rd 2012 I had a radical prostatectomy. Found to be Gleason 9. Had escaped through back of prostate. Adjunct external radiation during October/November 2012. PSA end Feb 2013 < 0.01 but started growing as from June 2013 and is now 0.42 (at 5th December 2013), amounting to a doubling every six weeks. Bone, CT and PET scans have so far turned up nothing.
My onchologist proposes another blood test in mid-February 2014 and if PSA still growing, he will start me on Androgen Deprivation (AD) for six months. If scans still OK then to give me a holiday from AD for a while but resume when PSA growth resumes significantly.
Any thoughts? Grateful for any advice. David
