I echo the above responses as well, your numbers still look good but you need to stay on top of them. My PSA stayed away until about
10 months post surgery and then it was .2, a check 3 months later and it was .3 so yet another appointment date set for 2 months later but also appointments were made to see the radiation experts. Long story short the next test was .4 and on to radiation which I started in April and finished in June. My first follow up PSA test and was hoping for any kind of a decrease in the reading. Both to me and my doctor was great results all the way back down to .09 and thier device only goes as low as .06 so he said see you in 6 months. I will stay on top of it but I am very hopeful that the salvage radiation was sucessful. Here's hoping it's just a blimp in the reading but never lose faith.
