Had my first (3 month) post BT PSA this week. 4.7 compared to 9.1 at diagnosis.
Does this sound OK? I meet with the rad oncologist next week but would like opinions before then.
Age 63

01/26/10 ...PSA 9....Referred to urologist
02/26/10 ...Met with urologist ...DRE normal but wanted to do biopsy
03/26/10 ...Biopsy done. 14 samples...3 positive on right side...all 11% Gleason 3+3
4/26/10 Met with radiologist. Decided on Brachytherapy.

Ray...cutting the PSA in half within three months is fine in my opinion.  I think you're doin' great and hopefully your RO will agree.

Thanks guys for the replies. That's one thing I didn't ask about before the implants.
