I think I already know the answer to this but just want to check on here first before I open the champagne. I have just got via email the results from my 12 week post RP PSA blood test. The reading is 0.014.
A quick search through the forum would suggest that, this figure is very promising but can someone confirm this?
I realise that it could rise over the coming months/years but for the time being the value would suggest that the operation was a success and for the time being I’m in remission???
Diagnosed December 2020, Gleason 7 (3+4). Open RP 1/3/21 which went well, with clear surgical margins
under normal circumstances I would’ve got the results from my surgeon, but I have confused the issue slightly buy asking my haematology consultant that I see every month for another issue to do the test on his behalf, to save on travelling time and contacts as I’m shielding. My surgeon was okay with this as they use the same lab and he told my haematologist what to write on the blood forms so the test was done to the correct ultra sensitive level - sensitivity of 0.006
I can’t get to speak to either consultant till the end of the week.
