bone scan anxiety

Just had a follow up bone scan. Tech said he had to take extra pictures of the pelvis area. What are the chances of mets after just completing 1 year triple blockade and acheving a psa od .005 in mid May.

Re: bone scan anxiety

With a PSA that low, the chances of finding metastases with traditional bone scans are none. (0.005 ng/ml)

In my opinion it would have been better using the money in "other enjoyment".
