1st PSA test since radio was 0.9. I don't know what I expected, but I was hoping it would be less that this. My CNS says it's fine considering I'd only finished radio 7 weeks ago.

I see the consultant next week, when I'll hopefully get some more detail on it.

Need to keep positive and believe what I'm being told!

Also, I'm still having issues with the polyarthritis, but it does seem to be very slowly improving.

For the record:

Aug 2016: PSA 37.0

Feb 2017: PSA 5.6   (3 months HT)

Aug 2017: PSA 0.9   (9 months HT + 2 months RT)

Update 1/9/2017:

Seen the consultant and he seems happy with the PSA result. I'll see him again in 6 months time, when we'll then have 3 test results. Guess that will give a fuller story.
