Mr. GFM had his 6 month PSA today. A very slight rise from 0.05 to 0.06. The Since he is 4 years post op (this week) the Dr. thinks it might be a little bit of prostate tissue left in that is causing this. January 11 PSA was 0.5. May 11 PSA was 0.5.
We will continue to go back every six months for PSA's. As long as these rises are this tiny, the Dr. thinks we will not need additional treatment.
Drinks are on me!
