Just got my latest PSA result.....3.7.
It has risen from 2.4 7weeks ago.
7 weeks ago, as I had symptoms of prostate infection, the urologist put me on a fortnight of antibiotics and told me to get a retest done 4 weeks after I finished them.
Unfortunately i have had to go back to the Dr ( my GP ) twice for more antibiotics as the infection only seemed to clear up for a few day at the end of each course...........I still have the symptoms of an infection.
Could the fact that it looks like I am still fighting a prostate infection be the reason that my PSA has gone up to 3.7?
My Oncologist said when she discharged me that I could go back to her if it gets to 4......should I get my GP to refer me back......the way it is going up, my PSA will be over 4 in 4 wks,
or do I see what the Urologist has in mind re the infection?
I have my next PSA booked in 4 wks, this is one of my 6 monthly checks
