Hi Everyone
Just got my husband'd psa.It has gone up from jan /11  psa 1.07 to march /11  psa 1.50
We had it done a little early because we want to head home and the  Dr is here which is 8 hr away.I guess we better wait to hear from him before heading home.Not sure what he will have to say.His last words were wait till it  gose up to 2 or more before talking about any treatment  but I think that it is a pretty fast rise for the time line.
Thanks for reading

Deidra,
Sorry to hear of the PSA results, but that was a 2 month span so the Doc might be right on his call. But get a second opinion if you are uncomfortable with his suggestion. Keep us posted.

Well the Dr called,he is very good at calling with the official results. He want's to wait till the June psa test ..which is what I pretty much new any ways. He said there is cancer floating around and we just have to wait for it to rear it's ugly head..Just love the waiting game. Has anyone had balance isusse's. My Husband has a CT,EEG all kinds of blood work ,Eye and Ear tested and has tried different meds. Its really doing a number on him .This has taken place since he had radiation ..
