This is always a possibility, but you have the decision on how long to wait to test again. If you would like to be tested more frequently, you can ask (politely demand) to do so. But, since you are at a PSA high postsurgery. This probably isn't bounce. But it could be an errant reading, in which case requesting another test is understandable for peace of mind. Thank you for all the support you have given me, and you know how to reach me so that I can be there for you. Be well and be positive.
