debbie, you are the only person i've seen on here who has posted such a high rise in psa.
my husband posted that his went up from .7 in april 08 to 12.8 this week (10/08). he's going through pelvic, bone, and kidney scans this week. i've been on the internet reading all this alarming news about when psa's double or when they go up 2 points, and here we are with it going up 12 points in less than 6 months. he is completely asymptomatic - nothing, no pain, no lumps, bumps, nodules, a negative DRE and everything works. like someone else said in a post, i guess cancer has no rules..........
i just figured out how to do the signature for him. he can post, but beyond that he calls me in for help!
