Dear fellow Allan-
It is possible that microscopic amounts of GS 6 tissue were left behind at surgery, and now you are left with the uncomfortable decision about
whether to have salvage radiation. You may want to read a recent article I wrote:Low detectable PSA after prostatectomy – watch or treat?
GS6 has never been found to metastasize, you may want a second opinion on your post-op pathology, if they keep the samples this long. Sometimes when they do thinner slices, they find things that they didn't see earlier. But even if it was
a true GS 6, is it still one now?
Detection options are limited with PSA at .2 and slow progression. Sometimes an mpMRI can find something, but probably not. Sometimes they can biopsy the anastomosis and around the prostate bed, but that is like searching for a needle in a haystack.
