I'm fairly new to this wonderful website; lots of good information here that has helped me alot! I had prostate removed May 14, 2013, my psa was .3 after; I signed on for 38 radiation treatments that ended on Nov. 14; I had my 1st psa test this morning, it was .4, not what I was hoping for, the doc said it 'was a good thing" it pretty much stayed the same, I have another test to be done on May 29th.....I have never been sick from day 1; no leaking, no blood in urine or stools, still working 45 hours a week.....I'm trying not to worry about
it but you know how that goes......I understand the radiation is still working up to 6 months so maybe this wasn't a 'true reading', that's what I'm hoping for......has anyone here had similar results? I guess the next form of treatment for me would be hormone therapy; I've read alot about
it and have already decided against it for the future.....any input would help, thank you.......
