Latest PSA is good two and a half years after completion of 88 gy of Image Guided IMRT. I'm 65 years old and still flying the great Gulfstream business jet. Never say die.
Nice to hear from you, Ray. I remember you and your kindness and concern well.
For those who recall, we are still caring for my grandson five days a week. When I joined this wonderful place he was not yet born. An incredible amount of living has gone on since then. He is now three years old and a joy. My namesake.
August of 2006, PSA up to 4.2 from 2.7 one year ago.
October free and total PSA 12% free and 5.0 total.
A month, or so later, 4.7.
Late in the year decide on Image Guided IMRT.
Begin 43 treatments on January 23, 2007 and finish on March 23.
Wow, almost two years behind. I had a typical radiation bounce that
scared me, but it seems to be ok. PSA is about 1.0 which is ok for
a rad guy at this stage of the game.
Got my FAA medical certificate back four months after starting my
treatment. It's still a First Class, just jumping through a few hoops.
October, 2009. Latest PSA is still 1.0 - that would make you surgery guys nuts, but it's just fine for a rad guy.
