Gonna grab your post out and put it in a seperate post before it gets overlooked or runs off the bottom of the screen.

I'm SO glad to have found this forum! My husband (56) is also a "rising psa" case & quite honestly I'm scared!, but I have to pretend not to be for his sake. Because of having bad panic attacks, I can only process a bit of info at a time - kind of like testing a sore tooth, lol, but just the same, I know I have to learn all I can.
He had his surgery in early Sept. & has had 2 psa tests since then - .05 & the 2nd doubled to 1.4. The dr told him the results a month ago, but said he wld discuss options at his app't in mid-June. Personally I felt this was far too long to wait, & persuaded my husband to change it to May 22...I wld still rather it was much sooner than that, but my husband is being a bit of an ostrich (who can blame him?)& I think I've pushed him as far as I can on this topic.
He had his entire prostate removed, & afterwards the surgeon thought it had clear edges, but warned us that he couldn't be certain.
Thank-you for any advice you may have for us.
