My husband had brachytherapy in April of 2006 and
this morning he went to his radiation oncologist for
his 18 month check up. I have been a little anxious
because sometimes there is a bounce in psa at this
point. However, when my husband came home, he
told me that his radiation oncologist did a digital rectal exam and told him that his prostate was flat, but that he
was not going to do a PSA and leave it for his urologist
to do. My husband doesn't see his urologist again until April. So his 18 month PSA is being skipped
and his next one will be at two years.
Has anyone else who had brachytherapy skipped their
18 month psa test?
Sure would appreciate hearing from someone.
