I am now 51 years old...
It is just over 2 years since I was diagnosed with PC and just under 2 years since I had a prostatectomy. I also had 6 1/2 weeks of radiotherapy and then I was put on the Prostap hormone injection which I hated.
I became depressed and separated from my wife but my PSA came down to 0.004 which I understand is the lowest it can be...?
I asked my consultant if I could come of the injections because of the side-effects and she agreed.
My last injection was October 2017 but I still get some side-effects such as hot sweats. I also have complete ED which is being treated separately.
I have just had another PSA test and my reading is now 0.1
I don't see my consultant until mid-June but I am guessing that the rise is because I have stopped having the Prostap injection.
Has anyone else seen a similar rise in their PSA after stopping Prostap and is the rise considered normal?
I have absolutely no interest in going back to the injection...
On a side note, I am still separated from my wife although we now talk, I am on medication for my depression and I feel 100% better than I did a year ago!
Prostate Cancer didn't take my life but boy did it take some of it away!
