Prostate Cancer Recurrence after 10 years.

I am 67 yeards old. I had Brachytherapy (seed implants) in 1998 after 5 weeks of radiation. My PSA declined after the procedure to 0.01 during 10 years. My annual PSA screening came back with a 10.1. I am scheduled for an MRI and bone scan next week. What kind of treatments will I be facing? By the way, my doctor did noy find anything anusual when he performed a DRE (Digital Rectal Exam)

Please share your experiences or comments.

Thanks, Bert

So sorry to hear about your recurrence. I'm at 4 months post surgery (Davinci) so all I can offer is words of encouragement. Keep us posted on how you do. Do they think you can do radiation again? Or have the ruled that out all ready?
