Well, that’s good news at least.
I spoke about possible recurrence in my own case to the leading prostate cancer oncologist at The Royal Marsden Hospital (so far, so good, the bugger’s still gone🤞). He said in the event of salvage radiotherapy, it would be better to have a specific target to aim the radiation at, rather than irradiating the whole prostate bed, with its increased risk of unfortunate side-effects.
He said if I had significant rises in PSA in consecutive tests, the next step would be to have a scan to determine the size and location of any metastases. I think the best you can get on the NHS is a pet-CT scan using Choline as a tracing agent, but a far more accurate one is the pet-PSMA scan which uses the Gallium-68 isotope, yours for only £2600 in England, £400 in India.
I suggest you discuss the possibility of another scan with your oncologist before any RT.
