I remembered to ask our surgeon at our pre-surgery consult how long they will do the first PSA test post-op and he said one month, but It didn't occur to ask ... do they do an "ultrasensitive PSA" test or just the general one?
I am kind of confused about what the difference is, but have seen people on here who get .1 post surgery and others who get things like a .04 or whatever. What is a "good" PSA one month post-op?
Did your doc do the ultrasensitive on your first post-op PSA or a regular. When do they do the ultrasensitive? do you request it? is it dictated by insurance, etc?
Thanks for any answers.
