I wonder why some GPs (who in my experience know very little about PCa) are so stingy about a PSA blood test form? Mine is not, and in any event I have a photocopier, so I take a test whenever I want.
I am up to six monthly intervals now, and all have been <0.1 since my surgery three years ago.
In your situation, I certainly wouldn’t want to wait another year for a subsequent test, and it sounds like you have a dope for GP!
Let’s hope your missive to your practice manager (mine is useless, but the GPs are great) has some effect.
Why would a doctor put you through all this anguish and anxiety, to the extent that you have to contact a cancer website to discuss it with the likes of us, when as I understand it a PSA form is a keystroke away on his computer, and I think they cost the NHS eight quid?
I guess you won’t be flavour of the month in the receptionists’ office from now on, the same as me, but I’m always warmly welcomed in the various Doctors’ rooms as invariably we have a laugh.
I would put money that this is down to an absent < !
Best of luck.
