My SO (Ken) just had his annual physical last week and ten years after a radical prostate surgery his PSA has gone from undetectable for last 9 years to 3.6. Has an appointment this afternoon with TUCC (The Urological Center of Colorado) this afternoon (they did his original surgery, etc.). I probably haven't been around here for 8 years or so, but this site was so helpful first time around. I am sure I will have lots of questions as this process goes on, but for now will browse around and see what I can find about
recurrent prostate cancer after 9 years. Anyone else going through this let me know! Would welcome any support.
This is our (Ken and Tanya) info from 2006/2007:
Signficant Other diagnosed: 10/30/06 (age 63)
PSA: 3.7 (up from 3.4 prior year)
Biopsy: 1/10 positive, 5% cancerous, right apex.
Treatment: DaVinci. Completed April 3, 2007
Edit to add path results (thanks Island Time): Path results: 1% of prostate involved. Very small tumors on both right and left apex. Negative margins, negative seminal vessicles, lymph nodes left intact. Gleason upgraded 3+4=7.
All PSA's since surgery (until last week): <.01
