My PSA was checked in mid April about 10 days after a biopsy, and it peaked at about 9.7 then. Of course, mine also is a G9 with dominant type 5, so the cancer tissue wasn't putting out as much PSA as it would have with less messed up cells. I figure based on estimated tumor volume it should have been 20 or more if it had been a G7.
First Lupron shot was May 1, 2013. By mid June it had fallen to about 1, so uro onc added Casodex. They were looking for <0.5 at the start of radiotherapy, if I recall correctly.
Started IGRT about July 1, 2013.
After IGRT at the end of August 2013, PSA was undetectable (<0.1), and has been there ever since (yay!).
I've been on Lupron and Casodex ever since, with that 3 year sentence due to wrap up at the end of March.
