I posted something about
this, albeit in a slightly different vein some weeks ago, but after three post-surgical PSA's (following RRP 12/07) of <0.01 I had the latest come in AT 0.01, which true to the stories of ultra-sensitive test anxiety, has had me a bit anxious. My doc wanted to simply test routinely for my next regularly scheduled appointment in six months. After considerable brow furrowing he "compromised" and gave me a lab form for three months (late March). The more I thought about
it, the more steamed I got, and decided to take matters into my own hands, since I am of course the one ultimately responsible for my own treatment. I called my GP and had him write a lab request (same lab I always use) and had blood drawn today. I'll either be relieved if it comes back at <0.01 (and have a better February and March) or see "the truth" and begin preparing for what may be the next step of this fiasco.
Now that I'm off my soapbox
has anyone else had their "ultra-sensitive PSA readings fluctuate, and how much?
