Thanks, I met with my oncologist yesterday. She said not to panic, that it going up slowly and I may never need additional treatment but once it moves up into range of the new scanner we can locate PC. If in lymph nodes, it can be zapped.
I enrolled in a new, sensitive PSMA PET clinical trial Aug/18 when my PSA was 1.17. 2 regional nodes were identified with small lesions.URO/surgeon said that RT would be a better option as they would be difficult to remove. Had RT/ADT this Fall/Winter and like Prato, will wait to see if RT has done the job. RO said that if my PSA numbers go up, I can still get another PET scan to identify where the cancer is and possibly radiate the area.
