    Post Brachytherapy PSA

    Wanted to post an update.
    I'm thinking this is quite good news. Jim had HDR Brachytherapy last October. Unable to do pelvic radiation nor any lymph nodes nor his suspicious bone spot. He is considered Oligometastatic. Despite limited RT, after six months of PSA <0.04, this month he is down to <0.02. He of course still on his 3 month Lupron, 1000mg Zytiga and 5mg prednisone. Don't know if a 0.02 drop is meaningless, but it feels good mentally. Thank you again for listening.
