Yeah I responded prior, but what the heck. I guess the implant thing is zoladex a type of ADT or HT hormone therapy, implant is subcataneous pellet like. Should control psa levels to low-low when working its best. If you just resumed the zoladex and psa was up to 26, then it should hopefully go back down, soon. Now if it does not then that is more worrisome and you need to seek an oncologist for better wisdom in treating such a situation.
Knowledge is your power and could help put his mind at ease. There are various protocols for treating PCa that is even resistant (hprca). I have been treating mine when ADT3 was failing back in 2005 after 2 yrs., switched protocols and done well enough through to 2011, thus far.
