I wanted to provide an update on my status post-treatment. I underwent IMRT/Calypso treatment from 2/26/18 to 4/26/18 (44 treatments). My first follow up PSA test 60 days later came in at 1.2. My second, most recent follow up PSA score was 0.7. My doctor was encouraged enough to move follow up appointments to six months versus three. My urinary side effects (slight leakage) has gone away. So I'm pleased with the progress to date but realize there could be setbacks in the future. Nevertheless I did want to report some good news for those who may just be starting treatment.
