Second"opinion" lab results just came back. PSA 8.7 Dr. says he has never had a case where psa were so high. He has consulted with the others in his group who have only seen a "few" rare cases as such. Not many text book cases to consult either. Scheduling bone scan and some new CT scan only recently available. They will call thiws afternoon.
Advice?? Info?? ANYTHING! (this second set of PSA's were done by a different lab).

Just got the really bad news of PSA of 7, 6 weeks after Robotic surgery (4+3=7 Gleason, T3C, spread to seminal vesicle on right side--removed--Margin is supposedly good--at least 1/4 ", lymph nodes no sign of cancer, Pelvic/Chest CT scan prior to surgery show no
sign of cancer)
Having it retested today--wish me luck
