I am in Thailand living now for 10 years. Doctors are good here but I have to say when my PSA went from ,4, 3.1, 4.1, 4.3 he just said watch it with the annual physical. Well, this last one came back 6,9 and had the biopsy, came back all cores cancer, my Gleason was 8, had the surgery, awful chit, but after he took out many lymph nodes and the prostate, Gleason downgraded to a 7 and that was 3 months ago so first blood work is soon and praying for a 0, if above this
have to have a PMSA Pet Scan and if any spots found where prostate was, I am on Lupron for a year or longer, if a spot is found outside where the prostate was, I will do Targeted Beam Radiation for sometime as it poisons it and it dies and have to do fast as the spot would have been pin pointed. I feel the Internist that does all my physicals was very BAD not to move me to a Biopsy when my PSA moved above 4. Kind of pisses me off. I had only 1 3 month Lupron and it messed me up.
