Tumultuous Journey Smooths Out

.My  post treatment two year anniversary PSA came in at .8.  UFPTI considers any post treatment PSA under 1.5 as a positive sign. In retrospect over the past year and a half all six of my PSAs have been under this guideline. Hooray and hallelujah for a reassuring post treatment trend.

Don,

I am very sorry to hear about your "apparent" proton failure. I too am dealing with an uncooperative PSA (6.8, 4.4, 3.9. 1.9, 3.7, and 3.9). I go back for another blood test this month and my doctor at UFPTI tells me that he has seen others in my situation experience the same thing. The situation to which he refers is PT treated low grade, Gleason 6, PCa followed by PSA readings that bounce around. He seemed positve that it would stabilize but he did mention to me all of the rememdies to which you have been apprised should something have been missed, starting with the PET Choline in Rochester. I will be following your situation closely. Best wishes.

Dave
