Hi Texan, I'm so sorry to hear that your post-surgery PSA wasn't what you'd hoped for. I know well all the questions, concerns and anxieties that news brings with it. It's clear you're doing what needs to be done to make the best decision you can for your treatment! Looking back, I wish we had been more aggressive in pursuing treatment alternatives years ago.
My husband had scans at Sand Lake earlier this month and has his first appointment at Dattoli early next week. With the holidays and a vacation we had booked, treatment was delayed longer that we would have liked. He also began some "light" HT in December. It's certainly not easy to cope with him being away from home for a couple of months, but we feel good about
the decision. All of the staff at Dattoli have been outstanding to work with so far, providing prompt and personalized communication.
I can definitely relate to your wife's anxiety. I wish both of you the best of luck as you continue on your journey!
