I was 68 years when I had my biopsy; PSA was 5.6 and my Gleason score was 8. Had RP two months later in March 2022. Margins clear but Gleason increased to 9 (4+5). First PSA post-surgery (3 months) was <0.01. Second PSA at 6 months 0.5. PSMA/PET was negative. Eligard injection was yesterday. Will begin 6 weeks of radiation of prostate bed and pelvic lymph nodes in two months.
Age 57. PSA 19. Biopsy 8 of 12 positive for cancer. Gleason 9 present.

Heart Transplant recipient Dec 2021 (very recent)
MRI first due to lowered immunity
Biopsy came back as 3+4=7
7/14 positive, 3)3+4 4)3+3
MRI and Bone Scan shows no spread outside seminal vessel
Beginning stage of interviewing Dr’s for treatment
I feel most Dr’s push for type of treatment that their good at…..
I’m on the fence as to ADT Lupron injection. I’ve been advised 4 month shot to ensure no micrscopic cells, but reading side effects cause me concern.
No mention yet by any Dr of performing a PSMA Pet scan.
