psa rising

i'm 62 and have had a radical prostate removal 4 years ago, since then my psa level has never gone to 0 and has risen to 2 then 3. so then we went and did the radiaton treatment 2 years ago and all seemed fine. psa going from 0.4 to gradualy rising to 1.6 in febuary this year. in june this year after the 4 month check it shot up to 7.8 and thinking it was an error had it redone at the hospital at checkup time 2 days later was 8.4. the doctors don't seem to worried about this but it's scareing me to death. should i seek a second opinion? i was involved in a small plane crash in march and i didn't get hurt or anything but there was a sudden stop and seat belt trama, could this cause a rise in psa level?
