Cancer: Prostate Message Board

Cancer: Prostate Board Index

Hello! I haven't posted in quite awhile. I am so thankful for the help we got here when my husband was diagnosed in 2013. When diagnosed, he was a Gleason 9, PSA 11.7, 7 cancerous cores out of 12. Most cores had high volume. My husband chose to do ADT for 4 months, EBRT for 5 weeks and 4 sessions of HD brachytherapy. He is about I year post treatment. His PSA has been taken every 3 months and the results thus far are .1, .2, .4, .5. We have been told that there is no concern about this rise as it takes 1 1/2 to 2 years post radiation for the PSA to be valid and that the Phoenix definition is 2 points over nadir which in his case is .1. Therefore, a 2.1 would be deemed a recurrence. I am wondering if anyone has personal perspective on this? Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your input.
