A rebound means exactly what to you? I can not figure your post out...it battles its self with words that make no sense in even a poetic way...it seems to use words like rebound and nadir in ways that in a context of treatment are medically inconsistant with the medical description "normally assigned" to same...Sorry I don't get it...others might and if so will comment as to their understanding...
Jejeje It must be that English is clearly not my mother tongue.
Maybe instead of rebound I should have used the word "bounce". As in:
"PSA Bounce After Radiotherapy May Be Associated With Outcomes in Patients With Prostate Cancer"
but it is easy to find other articles where "rebound" is used:
"Elevation of PSA after prostate radiotherapy: rebound or biochemical recurrence?"
To me PSA Rebound and PSA Bounce have the same meaning. Maybe they are not the same according to you?
With respect to the term Nadir, I'll confess that I do not find where I have used it incorrectly.
"The PSA nadir is the absolute lowest level that the PSA drops after treatment"
Therefore my PSA Nadir is 1.16. Or is my understanding completely wrong?
