My husband had a psa test in April of this year and it was 7.5. They doctor was concerned and put him on antibiotics to see if it could be an infection. He retested him a few weeks later and the psa was a bit higher. So he recomended he should see a Urologist. The Urologist recommended a biopsy. The biopsy showed Prostate Cancer. He tested 10 cores...I think and found one core with 5% non aggressive cancer. He recommended Radiation Therapy but gave us a lot of information to read and think about concerning which therapy he wanted to do. We took a good amount of time researching information and after a LOT of thinking and praying my husband decided to go with the radioactive seed implant.
My husband had treatment done on Oct. 1st. of this year. Everything went fine and he seems to be doing well. The Doctor waited about thirty days to have another psa test done and that is why I am writing.
My husbands psa test came back 2.5. Which the Doctor says is good, and that it will continue to keep coming down. We do not go back for another checkup until April which I guess concerns me that they are waiting that long to check the psa again. Is this typical? Also...is 2.5 a good psa for after treatment. I guess I thought it would come down a lot more than this after treatment or is that only with surgery?
I would appreciate any input...thank you.
