Hey Trey, nice to hear from you!  Are you still in the deep south, or back east near the tidewater?  Once again teaching.  Enquiring minds want to know.

Regards,

Bill

Hi Trey

I wish you much good luck in your next PSA test (the big one as you call it). Your 1st PSA test was really soon (about one month) after treatment, so a big drop in your PSA shouldn't have necessarily been expected so soon.. I am very surprised that your doctor asked you to take your 1st PSA test that soon--three months is usually the norm. All the best.

Dave
68, 29-core biopsy 9/27/06, PSA 7.1, Stage T1c, Gleason 7 (3+4) [less than 20% in one area],  Gleason 6 [less than 5% in two other areas], negative DRE, bone scan and Endorectal MRI. Completed 39 Proton radiation treatments 2/22/07-4/18/07.  First PSA test 7/19/07 (3 months after treatment) was 2.1 or a 70% reduction in my PSA before treatment (this was better than the average expectation of a 50% reduction in PSA at this juncture, according to my radiation oncologist).
