An overview of Don's case.
PSA pre-LRP surgery 2/09/06 was 7.96
First PSA post surgery - 11.6, 12.9, 13.9 (all between 4/15 to 4/26) Tests done to confirm cancer NOT in prostate bed. Microscopic cancer cells were somewhere but not showing up in any tests at this point. I cannot tell you how much this sucked. We thought "get it out and he'll be good to go". Not to happen. I cannot tell you how overwhelming this all was.
PSA 6/06/06 - 13.76
PSA 8/23/06 - 18.85 Multiple distant lymph nodes involved (out of pelvic region)
Started Lupron 9/06/06
12/06/06 - PSA .8
3/06/07 - PSA .3
It needs to go lower.
