2 years ago at age 54 ( was then and still am in good physical shape), I had a PSA of 31.9, underwent radical prostectomy, lymph nodes removed ( they were clear ). Since then my score has risen constantly. August 2011 underwent 6 weeks of IGRT. My score is still doubling, last result 11-26-2012 was 1.440 up from 04-23-2012 then 0.701. I feel great have no side effects from the radiation. Its seems my only option is either hormone therapy ( I think I will decline that option) or a clinical trial at UWMadison Hospital, that doesnt sound to promising ( a sort of suppresive vaccine). Any advice anyone?

Dear davey1956,

A good place to look for ideas about prostate cancer treatment is MD Anderson's website.  Here is a link to the prostate cancer page:

http://www.mdanderson.org/patient-and-cancer-information/cancer-information/cancer-types/prostate-cancer/index.html

Also, you could contact AskMDAnderson with specific questions at:

Best of luck and keep us posted on your progress,

Laura Walther-Broussard, LCSW, OSW-C, Social Work Counselor
