I stopped Lupron to see how fast my PSA would rise and it is
rising fast, for example:
I had a test on:
0.56 so it has gone up 4 tenths in two months. how bad is that? does that seem like an awful
fast rise? what should i do? how sick am i? i know the doctor wants me to take more shots... what would you do? what should i do? i had protatectomy a year ago, no radiation yet, should i have radiation?
