Just had the axumin F18 PET scan myself 3 weeks ago. 2 pelvic lymph nodes lit up like stars in a darkened sky. Last PSA was 2.47, next blood test is this coming week.
I will also be making an appointment with the RO to see if they can be cooked, am scheduled for Eligard + Xtandi as well, kind - of playing it by ear now. If the spots can be cooked I will wait on the chems, if not I will do the do.
The standard for 'biological reoccurence" used to be 0.5 ng/dL, not sure if that counts as that any more.
