I reposted this to correct my latest PSA.
Ideally, the three month PSA after RP should fall to almost zero. My PSA went from .02 to .09 and then .18 at 15 months out. I am now beginning salvage radiation. Most radiation doc's prefer to do this for patients with positive margins, as you can see in my signature, as soon as a patient is continent. I would definitely seek a second opinion. Your best chance for a cure if you have a probable recurrence is now. I'm sure several guys who were in the same boat will respond. Just a thought.
Biopsy 18 core samples, 2 positive <5%
