Seems to me that you recently told us Lupron was not having too bad an effect on your libido.
Did you forget about
no sex 72 hours before the PSA test?
Have it tested again while you are in LA with your son, and not pre-celebrating your first wedding anniversary.
Seriously Sonny, smart move going to see Scholz, Lam and Turner. Dr. Jeffrey Turner has done wonders for me, getting me on Zytiga, having me reimaged at AZ Molecular in Phoenix to prove I have no bone mets and went from stage IV treatable but not curable to locally advanced potentially curable with radiation.
In the cup half empty, half full department you are half way to having two consecutive PSA increases and qualifying for Provenge, Zytiga etc.
As we discussed on phone, the trial may also offer some treatment options for your situation if the PSA increase turns out to not be a blip.
Say hello to our mutual friend Tall Allen while you are in LA.
And have a happy 66th birthday on the 17th. JNF and I share the same birthday 2 days earlier on August 15th, mine being #66 like yours, Jack being another one of "the kids" like the WorryWarts.
Keep working the financial services industry Jack, we need you young guys to keep putting $$ into Social Security and Medicare funds so these funds stay solvent in our lifetime, with a little luck are there when you are Medicare eligible.
