Casey, here are my psa: age 57-.71, 58-.50, 59-.49, 60-.81, 61-0.80, 62-1.10, 63-1.28, 63-1.39, 64-1.76, 65-2.43. 66-3.19 & 5.17 (10 core biopsy, all negative) then at age 67 saturation biopsy (5 of 28 cancer)
TTSC - This one drives me crazy - "If your going to have cancer, prostate is the one to have." Yea, right OK, I am so lucky!
David (my hero) my first post SRT was 19 days at 0.65 but Rad Onc said meant nothing (was part of other tests) but on 9/16 (3 months) it was 0.47 (was 0.30 at start of SRT). Rad Onc not pleased but said the PSA at 6-8 months is best predictor if SRT working. We'll see. I sincerely wish you the best on your upcoming surgery, say a little prayer to St. Padre Pio.
