I had two biopsies, but for a different reason. My PSA was up and down for a year, and after several rounds of antibiotics, my first biopsy was negative. When my PSA was up again at my physical a year later, I repeated the process and after more antibiotics, a second biopsy found the cancer. I agree with Jim and think your assesment is correct. I don't think the cancer has gone away, and you certainly don't want a substansial delay in beginning your chosen treatment.
That said, if a second biopsy would ease your mind about a false positive, and if you could get it scheduled right away, a few days wouldn't change the odds very much.
Good Luck Walt, and keep us posted on your progress.
