Went to the oncologist today for my monthly PSA readout and Lupron injection. My PSA was 14.7!? That’s less than half of what it was last month. The oncologist was at a loss to explain what caused it, but he thinks it’s a valid result. He claims they rarely have lab issues with PSA measurement. The only thing I’ve done differently is to start drinking pomegranate juice, which is supposed to slow PSA doubling time. Maybe it’s really the case it’s real and will hold up. The oncologist cautioned me that it might jump back up, but he’s hopeful. If it does hold, it probably means months more for me.
We also decided to switch to four month injections from the one month I’ve been on. My next visit to the oncologist is now two months up from the usual one month.
