Hi all, yesterday I had my quarterly update on PSA and bloods. It was a phone conversation due to coronavirus protection measures.
I had the usual scanxiety in the lead up, not helped by the fact that there was no scheduled time for the call. I just had to wait until the call arrived at 1pm.
But it was worth the wait. Bloods are OK. PSA was 17, down from 32 in December! There is no known reason for the reduction. Not that much has changed in my life. Maybe the PSA was rising for several months after the radiation therapy on the tumour in my chest last year, and it is finally settling down. Maybe not. Either way, one number is not a trend, so we will wait for the next quarterly check up to see what transpires.
I was absolutely over the moon yesterday. I do not know how long it has been since my PSA was 17 or lower.
Good health and happiness to all. Cheers, Phil
