Robotic Prostatectomy

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2006 at age 55. My PSA was 5.53. My Gleason score was 3+4=7. Stage 2. I had a robotic prostatectomy. PSA stay undetectable for 7 years when it rose to 0.22. I had 39 radiation treatments to my prostate bed. Again it stayed undetectable until it slowly rose to my current PSA of 0.1. I am waiting and watching as of now. I’m sure I’ll need hormone therapy at some point. Praying every day. Stephen.

    Thanks for sharing your story. I had robotic surgery in April and my PSA is .018, but it’s important for me to continue with my followups, not get complacent about my recovery. I hope your PSA stabilizes and you are spared further treatment.
