Had my retest and my visit with Dr, result is the same as three weeks ago, .02 WITHOUT the < sign. Not what i was hoping for, but at least it didnt go up. On the other hand, it was only 3 weeks since the last test.
Next step is retest in 3 months. Dr is also ordering a genomic test that they do at his hospital called Precise MD www.prostatecancercenternyc.com/diagnosis/precision-urology/
Also ordering a Decipher test if Medicare will pay for it. He said it gives more info than their own Precise MD, but if Medicare won't pay for it then he recommends we just do the Precise MD for now.
He said that .02 is nothing, could be a machine calibration (twice?, i dunno) and they consider it undetectable. When i paraphrased him an said, "so could be nothing or could be very early signs of BCR" he responded with "I wouldn't say that, i wouldn't even go there yet".
Personally, i think he was sugar coating it, he knows I'm a worrier. But whatever. I think at this point its 50/50 that it could be precursor to bcr.
He also said they dont do anything until it hits .1, and i am so far away from that i shouldn't be concerned. I have no plans on waiting till it hits .1 if i get two rises in a row, I'm outta there and on my way to an RO.
So my next retest is May 5th. Until then I'm going to try to put it in a box and store it in the closet. My daughter is getting married 4 weeks from tomorrow we have a big wedding planned and there is no disease on earth thats gonna screw up that wedding for me.
