Nothing in the prostate cancer world is black-and-white and, because my own PSA has been rising post-surgery, I'm just trying to get an understanding of what PSA level was used as the trigger to begin some sort of salvage therapy by other prostate cancer patients who had a prostatectomy and saw their PSA level increase some time after surgery.
My PSA was undetectable for 56 months after my surgery and then it suddenly became detectable at 0.05 ng/ml. It's been bouncing between 0.04 and 0.08 ever since. We have not yet started any salvage therapy.
This survey is completely anonymous and not really meant to be scientific. I'll share the results on 11 August on my blog, dansjourney.com.
Thanks for your participation!
