    FWIW, MDA wanted me to wait until 0.1 on the standard test before SRT. And even then, we waited yet another month to confirm the very same reading.

    Good question, Pratoman.

    I've been wondering myself why they all of a sudden are testing me with the ultra test. The last score was 0.010. Before they were testing me with the regular PSA and...

    Probably a good decision.

    MDA had me do a Decipher which came back high risk for recurrence. Nine months post RALP, I popped up detectable at .1. I did the 35 SRT sessions and haven't looked...

    Just came back from Europe myself. Many sites blocked while in France and Spain, even mundane regular newspapers. Gotta love net neutrality, right?

    Zero, and yes, three consecutive 0.1 results over three months. My Decipher results were also a factor since I was in the high risk pool.

    Congrats on the favorable results. As stated already, vigilance is the prudent thing. They tested me monthly until I popped up detectable. Hoping you have continued success going forward.

    They wanted me to do radiation almost immediately. They did a Decipher Test which pointed to doing radiation sooner than later. I pushed back until recovery was as far along as possible. It took 9...

    Here's to hoping for the best possible outcome/results.

    My score was 26%. The highest my surgeon indicated he'd ever seen was 55%.

    Post surgery... it was dead on accurate, btw, for me. High risk... Hence my SRT 9 months post surgery. I have been a member of the zero club since.

    Why wait until next month? It is possible they erred in testing. Do next month also anyway.

    Yes... This ^^^.

    It's basically what I followed. They tested me closely every month after the initial three months. After nine months, I popped up detectable. So SRT i went. All good now.

    Heal first... then yes, meet with your RO for a game plan. Don't worry ... the radiation will get the rest of it. I went through it myself.
