All , thanks for the replies, bit of history,I had a PSMA scan at 1.4 in July 2023, that picked up a pelvic lymph tumor and I had 5 SABR sessions in August 2023. I am fairly confident another scan will pick up something. The rise in PSA was described as a small rise.
A PSMA scan on the NHS will be around 3 months, so I asked about going private and then got mixed messages. You can have a PSMA scan in two weeks, treat the tumors (if possible) and then if the PSA rises later we may find something else. Or you could wait 3 months and see what develops, I asked is that risking further spread , answer, now you are asking questions I can't answer. Followed by, I can't discuss private treatments in a NHS environment.
My frustration is not understanding if or why the SABR treatment didn't seem to work. I even asked if they could have missed the tumor, which didn't go down well
In 2010 my GP missed a PSA of 6.9 three years later my PSA was 7.7, that was a rise of 0.8 in three years. I have just had a rise of 1.0 in 34 days.
Still optimistic, and would prefer to go down the possible cure or at least delay route rather than the HT control route.
Franci,177 is not an option as it has to preceded by treatments I haven't had.
Lyn ,sorry didn't quite understand about being PSMA.
