Hey Guys,

Last year my PSA was 4.35 so my Dr. put me on Cipro... afterwards
PSA down to 3.2. Year later PSA retested... back up to 4.75.
Dr. put me on 21 days of Cipro... PSA 6.07 immediately after Cipro... prostate aches!

Reason to worry?

YES!!!! Get to another doctor for another opinion!!! My husband's VA Urologist took the "wait & watch" approach and he had his prostrate remove w/cancer spread to his lymph nodes, b/c of it!!!!

I know deal with a lot of different things... sometimes I think that they don't take things as seriously as they should. My primary care doc didn't urge to get into see the Urologist... have A.M. appt. tomorrow.

Thanks for the response,

Sorry to hear about your husband... we'll pray for the both of you.

God Bless!

Sorry... I meant to say that my primary care doctor "Did" urge me to see the Urologist right away.
