After salvage radiation what is the average period of time to psa nadir. I have read that it is between 6 and 18 months on external radiation to the prostate as the primary treatment but can't find anything on averages for salvage radiation. Input appreciated.
DX 8/05 Gleason 5, Mayo clinic Second Opinion Gleason 6, PSA 2.8
Da Vinci surgery Dr. Dasari, Centennial Nashville 9/24/05
Pathology Report Gleason 6, 15 % on left side only very near to the edge of capsule, too close to call on margins, doc's said to watch it very closely, final decision T2A
PSA's have basically ranged from <.04 to .05 for two years.
no E.D. and no Incontinence, feel very blessed
