Post prostatectomy: What do rising PSA levels mean?
Hello @gcoley, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I can understand your concern and concern can be a good thing. Here's some information that may help understand the testing and followup.

You mentioned your family physician didn't seem concerned. Are you able to ask the surgeon who performed the procedure about the rise in the PSA test numbers?
