Hi. My last post confirmed that my first PSA test after RP was less than 0.1. It was previously 6.5.
This was despite histology confirming the Gleason score was 4+4 and that the tumor had breached the prostate. Lymph nodes were also ok.
Also, have just had my catheter removed after over 8 weeks. Am trying to go with the flow of everything ... as well as control the flow 😁
I often read of undetectable Gleason scores of less than 0.01.
My score is less than 0.1 is this simply down to the technology available?
Does the fact that the tumor breached the prostate significantly increase the risk of some cancer being left behind?
I believe the chances of reoccurrence are around 1 in 4?
My next PSA test is in January 2022.
I do normally manage to put all these thoughts in a box with the lid on.
Not tonight though 🤪
I am returning to work next week ... which in itself is fine.
However, whilst I have been off, work have began my a restructuring consultation process.
I have been sent initial proposed changes. My role has disappeared!!
This has been confirmed in a teams meeting with HR. There is long process to go through and things may change. But there is a good chance that I will be expected to engage in a interview process for a new role.
After the last few months this is not the return to work I had expected and I do not feel either confident or comfortable.
Any comments or similar experiences would be very welcome.
