Jerry, we all know how horrible the waiting game is on a critical PSA test.
If your results bump you up from the .3, obviously you would need to start your next treatment path. We can still hope the .3 was a testing blip and that this one will be back at .1, some men hover at .1 for long periods of time, perhaps that will be your fortune.
You mention HT. Did you meant the doctors wanted you to do both HT and SRT at the same time as a secondary treatment, or just HT alone? Wasn't clear in your post. In my case, 2 Radiation dr. said I needed strong SRT alone, 1 Radiation dr. said he wanted me to have HT and SRT combined. When I grilled my own radiation dr. about the subject, the one I decided to go with, she thought adding the HT was overkill in my case at this point, and that she thought it would be best to save HT for the future, for whatever reason the SRT were to fail. My uro/surgeon and my GP agreed with this line of thinking too.
Let's just hope your test at least drops back to .1. If it rises, brother, then I wouldn't waste a lot of time deciding and I would get into action while you still have a good window of opportunity for a cure. Just my advice. Wishing you well.
