I had a Radical Prostatectomy in October 2016 at age 64.
I have no problems with incontinence or erectile dysfunction.
My PSA was undetectable for over a year but then rose slowly to (currently) 0.13.
PSA doubling time is over one year. Gleason score was 3+4 = 7.
My oncologist now recommends 6 months hormone treatment – Bicalutamide tablets – coupled with 4 weeks radiotherapy. I assume this is appropriate though I believe the European Urological Association regards PSA doubling time below a year and Gleason below 8 as at a small risk of metastatic progression.
I’d appreciate any comments and advice and particularly with regard to side effects of these two treatments.
