I had Da Vince RALP on Jan 15, 2015. That, followed by two terrible weeks of 'catheter caused' urinary track blockage/infection which is still healing now but is at least tolerable.
7 days after surgery, pathology report arrived and showed 'margin' in one area. Doctor said he ended up cauterizing that area a lot anyway and doesn't think it will be a problem.
Gave blood yesterday and got the results today: 25 days after surgery: PSA = <.03. So, if it's less than .03, is it .02?, or .01?, or 0??? Googling around I saw an article stating that less than .1 actually means 0, is that true? Is the test simply not that accurate at those low amounts?
--PSA - 5
--Biopsy; 8 cores positive (all 3+3); 2 with perineural invasion identified
--25% 10% 20% 65% 65% 40% 50% 65%
