I have had umpteen PSA tests in the 28 months since my op, all have been undetectable.
I have extended my tests to six months now, as even if I have a biochemical recurrence, the treatment plan would not change much, another test three months later and then a check if the rate of increase or doubling was worrying, followed by HT, scans and RT.
I really am not bothered, whilst I empathise with others concerned about forthcoming PSA results, what can you do?
My friend on active surveillance for five years tells me his latest MRI has shown a reduction in tumour size and his PSA is down to 6. He follows a strict health, exercise and dietary regime, and his urologist, Professor Whocannotbenamedhere is amazed.
I’ll ask him to let you know what nuts he’s eating and which vintage Bordeaux!
