Hr: If you will research RT guys on this board you will see all kinds of PSA patterns following their therapies. The research is pretty evenly divided on whether or not a bounce or a quick drop is associated with less chance of recurrence. I am not aware of any studies that say recurrence has a particular time frame following RT.
I do know that each man is different and the post PSA patterns will bare this out. Many guys have had up to three bounces but their latest PSA is "down" and that takes some patience.
