Good news. My PSA is moving in the right direction, with this week’s results at 0.11 ng/mL, down from 0.13 ng/mL in March.

It’s not a significant shift and one data point doesn’t establish a trend, but I’ll take it.

Remember, at the beginning of this, my radiation oncologist said it would be a good twelve to eighteen months at a minimum before we could see the real effects of the radiation on the cancer. The radiation sessions ended eight and a half months ago, so it’s still early.

I’m also guessing that the six-month dose of Eligard has completely worn off by now (or nearly so), as it’s been just over a year since I received it on 3 May 2022.

Also on the good news front is that my urinary and bowel functions are pretty much back to where they were pre-radiation. Another win.

I meet with the urologist on 30 May, and I need to get an appointment with the radiation oncologist scheduled to go over the results.

Oh. And on a useless trivia note, this is my 500th post on this blog. (You’ll sleep better tonight knowing that.)

Be well!
