Have just returned from urologist where I received my 6 Monthly PSA result it has been 18 Month since my RP.
It was 0.03 down from 0.04 which was a relief I have some questions if some member may be able to clarify.
First the urologist said he was very happy with me and if I had any questions for him.
First I asked the urologist how long do I continue with 6 Monthly tests he said 5 years is this normal?
He then said if after 5 years of undetectable PSA they consider this a cure I have never heard this before.
I can only assume that after 5 years they may keep a eye on you with 12 Month PSA test am I right?
He then asked asked about my sex life I replied what sex life since being DX I have lost all interest hopefully
with time the urge will return .
