After treatment discussions
Went through the agonizing decision making like most of you. Decided on proton radiation as UFPTI. 30 rounds of radiation over 6 weeks. Finished July 5th. I think I had every test possible. MRI, CT, PET, Bone, biopsies, Decipher more CTs with contrast.
Just had my first PSA test post (3 months) treatments. Went from 3.75 to 1.2.
Would like feedback on others with post treatment PSA test and your numbers. Is the drop I had good, normal even at 3 months? I know the prostrate is still irritated and takes time to get to a base number. What was others base time frame?
I see others are also finishing treatments with same questions. What was post radiation treatments symptoms like urine retention urgency, dribbling? Seems I urinate a lot still but funny thing it seems to be a lot more when I drink coffee even though decaffeinated. I still get up about every 2 hours at night to urinate.
