Guihan Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 Continued from "Who would be interested in a case like mine?" You can see that here: http://advancedprost...case-like-mine/ Jim, the reason I consider a 3-month PSA blood test perodicity sufficient lies in my low levels. In a worst-case senario, let's assume one of my PSA results came back at the usual <0.01, but that my PSA was actually just about to exceed that level. If we give it the value 0.01, and apply my worst-recorded PSA doubling time of 66 days, my PSA blood test 84 days later would still measure only 0.025. Accordingly, on my revised treatment plan, my first indication of ADT failure would be a PSA reading in the range 0.1 to 0,25. An extra blood test would then be ordered 28 days later, by which time my PSA would still be less than 0.034. I will also be monitoring my testosterone levels by then, and this should provide additional useful clues. Tony, your question on Zoladex is a good one. On the other hand, I don't know what Zoladex options already exist, and this is something I want to discuss with my GP. I am also curious about how my past Zoladex treatment (which began in September, 2007) has affected my testosterone production. I feel sure my GP will have something to say about that.
