Re: psa levels
How regrettable, but alas! Not unusual. There is a great of information on the Internet, on this and almost every other medical compliant. It pays to be constantly researching ANY of your medial concerns, hence consulting medical staff armed with a background knowledge.
There you will find plenty of reports on PSA, the tests are not the 'be all' and careful
medics, appear to just use the PSA figures as part of the diagnostic analysis. Some advise caution on too great a stuff being used on PSA figures, also doing biopsies too.
Thus one needs to seek specialist advice early, even with your background homework too.
Not being a medic myself, I cannot claim, that had this chaps prostate cancer been treated quickly, he current health problems would have disappeared. BUT! It is well known the quicker cancer is treated, the easier and more successful is the outcome.
Also having the extra knowledge, that obviously results in querying the health challenges involved, gives the patient PLUS family/carers inbuilt additional abilities to beat the beast. That's the policy my wife & I adopted when faced with her Ovarian Cancer eight
years ago. Yes! We are both well, but the battle was long & fought with a totally dedicated team - patient, husband, doctor, specialists, support care nurse, even secretarial office staff. One other factor was used - DETERMINATION not to be beaten.
24 hours 7 days a week. This writer feels, ANY of the above, if they are a weak link,
could have reduced our ability to win through. Presumably our God helped too.
