Excercise After Prostatectomy

Had MRI this week to assess why my PSA has started elevating so soon after prostatectomy. Results show suspicious tissue in seminal vesicle margin area and now highly suspicious lesion on tail bone, indicating potential for bone metastasis. To validate if cancerous matastasis has extended to bones, planning a choline injection PET CT scan this coming week and better understand extent of matastasis. Based on the PET act scan results, combination of chemo, Androgen depervation theorpy, and radiation likely. A bit frustrating to learn this new news after finally feeling recovered from January surgery. Now time to get myself mentally ready for the next battle.

That's tough news to get, @jogger01 and just as you were getting back on your feet. It's a sucker punch in the gut. I'll be interested to hear the results of your upcoming testing and treatment decisions. I can imagine getting yourself prepared mentally isn't easy. Do you have a good support system around you?
