We have been given some conflicting advice from consultants and would appreciate other views as we are not too sure which way to go.
David had his HDR Brachytherapy privately and we paid for it, and his radiotherapy on the NHS so he has two consultants.
Mr. A the private consultant is suggesting a Tesla. 3 scan in January after his next PSA. His last 2 PSA readings have come back as 0.1
Mr. B NHS consultant is saying PSA every six months and that's all he needs, scans are not required.
David is Gleason 9 locally advanced and therefore it's an aggressive type of PCa, so we want to do the right thing, but we are self funding and don't have endless funds, but we want to do the best thing for his welfare.
Our local surgery is of course following the NHS advice, which we can appreciate, and they won't refer him for the scan.
Any experience and views or advice would be appreciated.
