Hello, and may I say a very belated thank you , to all who replied.
I lost my dad on Jan 26th this year (2018). 91.5 years old (Who said old age would get him before PCa would?)
On my own State of affairs, PSA up 0.5 now reading 8.6. I've had a Bone Scan this January, which show - Clear, apart from an old break in the ribs, which I can't remember having and it has never showed up in the previous Bone scans I've had.
Also had a CT scan which, I'm told shows no sign of cancer spread. Only a few non related 'age' ailments. So they say that there is no reason for my PSA to be rising.
Scans to be re-done if there is a significant rise.
Really worried that I am heading the same way as my dad. I know that there is only so much that the doctors can do and that we don't live forever, but he (dad) went down ( being abled bodied , look after himself etc.) in less than a year to being totally helpless.
I dont want to wait around until my PSA rises to such a level that the urologist passes me on to the oncologist.
Is there anything I should be asking urology to do? At the moment I'm on Bicalutimide and zolodex injection. I see my Specialist nurse today.
