Another Spike or ?

Posted 09 Nov 2020 at 15:38

So here we again. Yet another spike or ? Not unexpected, hence my hesitancy in booking PSA test, but sense prevailed. Those who know me will be aware of my PSA fluctations - yes I'm a good boy and refrain from activities that might increase it. To those newer members it was 1.96 in Apr 2017 which resulted in referral, tests but no treatment needed.

Passed message to GP stating referral point of 2. I've suggested another test now or next few months. Should hear from GP Tomorrow.

Sorry to see this Ray - perhaps after the next 3 month test, they will agree to another scan but perhaps with a different tracer?

Thanks lyn.

One the one hand I'm highly fortunate compared with some guys but living on a continual roller coaster is more difficult the longer the ride. Something perhaps those considering RT/HT might ponder. I'm already aware IHT would be offered. At that point I would think a roller coaster was better than that 😀
