Re: Can this be Prostate Cancer? Thread #2

Chris

I think that you are posting what you belive to be happening, which seems to be; bone metastases. I would think the same. The high PSA post surgery could only be explained if the surgeon had "forgotten" any portion of prostate tissue before closing you up.
But 3 years later the PSA has droped and is still high. The MRI is also positive.

Your next vist to the oncologist will get you an answer. In any case, spot RT is possible and recommended by doctors to treat spot matastatic cancer in bone. This is usually successful and aliviates pain.
You may still prefer to get a more precise image study doing a PET scan with the newer contrast agents, before going through the RT. More spots may be found.

Hope for the best.
