Twenty-eight months post treatment

I just realized that I had not posted my latest PSA test results. I had my last PSA test on October 12, 2007 and it was 0.73. I know that there are those that say that after treatment it should be >0.2. I beg to differ with them. My PSA for many years before I had prostate camcer was in the range of 0.6 – 0.7. That may very well be my “normal” PSA. After all, I still have a prostate! In addition, there are studies that show that it can take 36 – 50 months to reach your nadir PSA after radiation therapy.
See my earlier post on November 1, 2005 titled Four Months Post Treatment for additional information on how radiation treatment affects PSA.
I am encouraged and looking forward to my next PSA test which will be about the middle of Jannuary 2008.
Have a blessed day!
