In 2009, psa went from 1.9 to 3.6. Had 2 biopsies in Nov and Feb 2010 that came back negative. In Sept of 2011, PSA during routine physical showed PSA 19.6. Biopsey one month later was negative but PSA 29. After month on Cipro to address possible infection as cause psa was 27+. Another Biopsey in Jan and then Feb 3, 2012 got news: 1 core of 12, 15%, Gleason 6 (3+3) T1C. Subsequently, I had a bone scan that was negative and an MRI with endorectal coil that showed 1 suspect lymph node. Have lymph node biopsy scheduled for 3/26 but I suspect it is positive.
So I am already looking at options to reduce my decision time. There is so much to read and learn and yet none of it seems to point to clear paths. Any thoughts or experiance would be helpful in my decision making and my journey.
