Got the call from my doctor this evening and my psa is up again. Last psa was on 8-10-10 and was .19 and now 6 weeks later it is .34. The doctor said since we had done the surgery and two years later radiation and with my psa on the move that I needed to go to Oregon Health Science University and go to the Prostrate Cancer Unit and be seen by them. Needless to say my wife and I are numb right now and not sure what to think. We should here something within a week as to when they want to see me.

Bob & Wife, how devastating this must be for both of you! I cannot imagine John and I walking in your shoes, and hope that the doctor you'll meet gives both of you peace of mind and lots of hope for the future.
