My husband had a radical prostatectomy Dec. 2009 and then radiation therapy beginning April 2010...finished that in July. Currently he's on hormone therapy with his 4th shot due this month. He's currently experiencing bright red blood in the bowl not in the stool itself. Looks like we need some more answers....very concerned
I'm sorry, but for some reason I didn't know anyone had commented on my post. Here's an update. My first PSA blood test, six weeks after surgery was less than 0.1. My second test in March showed PSA also less than 0.1. My surgeon was pleased. I am scheduled for a third PSA in June.
I hope things go well for your husband.
