Hello again! I know you don't remember me but I posted here earlier this year and the end result was that I thought everything had resolved itself. I'll past most of my earlier post here so you can review:
I posted here about a month ago asking for help. 45 Years old. 12/11 PSA 2.6; 04/12 PSA 2.8; 12/12 PSA 4.46. I had a prostate biopsy one year ago which showed no cancer but my PSA was rising to the level of my last PSA which was in December 2012 (4.46). Have symptoms of urinary frequency.
Then: PSA 01/23/13 3.0 and free psa 13%
Then: PSA 04/23/13 1.9! Doc said he didn't need to see me until January 2014 very relieved!!!
A month ago I start having urinary symptoms again, some blood and pain in pelvic region lasted about two weeks and went to doc (primary care). Took PSA test. Urine and DRE normal. He put me on cipro for two weeks.
Got PSA results yesterday and they were 17!!! I am still having symptoms. He did another psa yesterday and I get the results today. He seems baffled and said he would call my urologist and see what to do next depending on the results. You all are so helpful in giving me focus and advice. What to you recommend? How would you proceed? What should I be asking for from my docs? I don't want to be alarmist but I also don't want to miss an opportunity to help myself.
Any advice would be helpful. I'll let you know results from yesterday's test when I get them (hopefully today).
