Hi all, well I am the wife, and my hubby has had issues with psa tests and biopsies since 2002. The biopsies were ok, then and the number ranged from 4 to 5 to 7 and back to 4 last year, but the last test showed 10.3. Since last year his number had dropped, and he didn't get a biopsy. Now we are retesting the psa, since the last test was done for life insurance purposes at a different lab, and we don't know if it was a free psa or what. He was denied life insurance due to this high number. I have a number of questions. First' is anyone able to reccommend a doctor in the Kansas City area? We had a urologist and he just retired. Also we don't know what questions to ask the doctor if the biopsy is bad. Is there a list somewhere? I do know that someone in that office does a robotic surgery, but he is new and young, and I just don't know about
him at all. There is another one in the office who is good, and I think he does the
open proceedure. At this point I am really scared. His number has been high for so long, and they never found anything, but they would always say we needed to keep an eye on it, and in hind sight we should have gotten a biopsy last year. I am a member of the Ulcerative colitis forum here, and also the ostomy forum. So as you can see, my hubby has spent the last few years taking care of me. I got such good info on my conditions on the Healing Well forums.
Thanks, Hopeso wife of DB
