Trust me, I know it's irrational given my pathology and post-surgical report and follow up but even though I told myself I wouldn't freak out about it I still find myself headed down that path. I'm only a year in to this and it's been going so well a part of me fears it's going too well - and this is grinding on that fear in a big way. That's why I came to HW.
Yes, it was the MRI combined with the X-Ray that is causing the doc's caution. I'm just glad the imaging center is able to get me in Monday morning.
Like you say, you already know this: seems to me your chance of METs are extremely low. Or really, of any kind of advance past a rising PSA some day, maybe. But even a rising PSA is often a long way from mets. So definitely take a really deep breath. Or, as a friend once told me years ago after I told him I was right on the edge: "take a step back from the edge.".
