Had my first PSA test today 3 months after IMRT. My Psa remained the same at .18. Thats what it was back in May when I started so I don't know if it is somewhere else or the radiation is still doing it's thing. The Rad Onc said that it was still undetectable and he will retest in February. I have scheduled an appointment with a medical oncologist in December to discus my options if need be. At best the Psa has been steady for about
7 months. Any comments from the IMRT gang out there would be appreciated.
