I was just wondering if psa levels fluctuate post surgery or should all reading be exactly the same?

Not necessarily. Rising PSA trends may indicate a problem however, tiny alterations that stay in the negative range are perfectly normal.

PSA should remain low.01 to .1. Minor elevations should be of no concern. Usually if your PSA starts to rise to .4 or .5 after surgery, doctors will monitor more frequently to see if adjuvant treatment is warranted.
