Scans this week

Based on my rising PSA, it looks like I'll be going back on hormone treatment. Before that happens, we need to have a bone scan and a CT scan to see if the cancer shows up on the bone or in some lymph nodes. Stay tuned

Bradley is my hero

My son Bradley had jaw surgery today and it was a major surgery and I'm happy to say all went very well. Bradley was and continues to be very brave, I'm very proud of him. He's facing several rough days of recovery and I know he'll be brave and put his best effort by not this recovery. Again, all went well according to the surgeon and I'm extremely proud of how brave my son Bradley has been and continues to be.

The plumbing is good, PSA not so good

I had my 1 year check up with my surgeon who did the reconstructive surgery. The Ultrasound showed everything looking very good. Plumbing, kidneys, etc Great news. PSA climbed by 50% during the past 6 weeks so I'm in the process of scheduling a CT Scan and a bone Scan. Precautionary, just to check if the cancer has metastasized to the bone or lymph nodes. Then I'll most likely go back on hormone treatment for 1 year. Next update coming soon Make it a great day!

My guess was correct

Well, my guess was correct. My last PSA 6 weeks ago was .8 which was up from .5 just 6 weeks earlier. I had a number in my mind of 1.2 since the Monday appointment. Sure enough, 1.2 and so now I will be having a bone scan and CT scan to see if the cancer has metastasized. Then it's most likely back on hormone ablation meds for 1 year. Scans to happen soon.....frickin cancer.
