First impression of bone scan is no uptake – negative bone scan still waiting final doctor report. Looks like this will be the end of any testing and diagnoses, no known reason for tripling of PSA and X-ray lesions. I guess I don’t need to be here, so thanks to all the new friends I made.

Hey Jim,

I am the same. PSA up from 0.1 to 10 in 5 months and just had bone scan and MRI and nothing shows.  I am also on 3 monthly hormone shots and that hasn't dragged down the PSA. Is there a term for "galloping PSA"? :-)   I am fit and fat and no bladder probs at all.

"Watch and wait"

Cheers

Bernie

Thanks Bill,

I may be back; there still is the unanswered question about the abnormal DRE.
Right now I’m more concern about the lesion on my hip which I should be posting about in a different forum. I’m just so burned out trying to get answers from the doctors I’m ready to give up all hopes for an answer. OK Rant over. Take care Bill and stay well.

Thanks Bob,

I’ll be updating my signature with updated PSA’s and test results, if and when giving.
I’ll be doing some posting over in the Arthritis forum to see if I can get any info about sclerotic hip lesions; just what are they, tumors.

Hi Jim,

 

Maybe it’s time to just stop and clear the mind… too much information sometimes puts us on overload!!!  This will allow you to start fresh in your search for answers…  I’m going to send a special rainbow to you for when times seem tough!!!

Jim ~ This rainbow was made just for you!!!!  yeah  

 

Always remember ~ you have friends here ~ too!!  And as you move forward onto other sites…. We’d sure appreciate the occasional note to let us know how you’re doing. 

 

Just cuz you’re moving away from da neighborhood….. doesn’t mean we won’t be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

 

Take care dear friend and we hope you find your answers and they are good answers.   Any time you need to “rant” as you call it….. swing back to us and we’ll be there to listen.  Always!!!

Bluebird, Thanks

Also thanks to Spinbiscuit, Swimom aka Glen, and the rest on my new friends and family here.

 

Update:

I received the final bone scan report along with the scan on CD.

The report reads as followed.

No abnormalities are detected in the pelvis.

Specifically, no abnormalities are noted in the right ilium.

 

There is a small area of increased activity noted in the skull or brain.

This is located anteriorly in either the left frontal or temporal bone.

However, this small area of increased activity could also be in the brain tissue itself as Tc-MDP can cross the blood brain barrier.

 

Note:

I have a vascular loop on the brain, first thought to be a brain aneurysm, this might be the activity noted.   As for nothing detected in the hip, pelvis, if a sclerotic lesion is 1 cm or less only 4% will be detected on a bone scan. Sorry I forgot to bookmark the report/link.   

 

 

 

Lastly, my PSA dated 7 Dec 06 is 1.9, fPSA 27% - Cause of rise prostatitis  

The hip lesions are Arthritis/ bone growth – Mine is most likely secondary to Paget’s bone disease which also explains the PSA spike. As PSA change/ Prostatitis  can be a symptom of Paget’s bone disease.
