First time poster, but have been reading here for a little while now. I decided in January to have a PSA test as I had turned 50 and was aware of the media drive for men to do so. It came back at 6.1, so I had another and that read 6.2. The usual from there, hospital, MRI, which showed a small area of concern, so biopsy required. That came back with 13 out of 35 samples showing Cancer, mostly with Gleason 4+3 and the target area showing 4+4. Bone scan was clear, and the MRI showed that lymph nodes around area to look normal.
RP took place on July 1st. Yesterday I met with the consultant for the first time to discuss and find out the results of last week's blood test. To say we were worried in the hours leading up is an understatement..
PSA undetectable! (less than 0.01) Next test in 3 months!
Bladder incontinent, 4 pads a day, ok if sitting or lying down, just walking or movement whilst standing will cause constant drip, only four and a half weeks post catheter though so hoping for improvement.
Thought I would share whatever the outcome of the test was, so glad it was good.
