Just a quick update.

You already know that I completed my bone scan, which the VA required (for some inexplicable reason) before ordering a PSMA PET scan. This morning, I was able to schedule the PSMA PET scan with the VA, and it’s set for 31 January 2024. That was much faster than scheduling it with UCLA two years ago.

I’ll go for a PSA test the week before the PSMA PET scan, perhaps on 24 or 25 January. It will be interesting to see how much it’s increased. As a refresher:

9 May 2023 – 0.11 ng/mL

31 October 2023 – 0.21 ng/mL

6 December 2023 – 0.33 ng/ML

Should I get a pool going to see what it will be this time?

I have an appointment with the urologist on 13 February to review the results and map out next steps.

More to come.
