living with Watch and Wait

Been on W. a. W. For nearly 3 years which is controlled by myself. I have to make my own PSA. Blood test  appointment via a form sent from my Cancer Consultant. I also have to inform Consultant when I have had my PSA. Blood test and Wait for a telephone consultancy appointment Rather than face to face. It's gone from 2 to 3 from results of PSA.

  • Hello Lennard and a very warm welcome to Cancer Chat.

    It sounds like you have been doing really well with the watch and wait over the last 3 years although I'm sorry to hear of the recent rise in your PSA. Hopefully this isn't any cause for concern but I'm sure your consultant will let you know if anything needs to be done.

    If you would like to discuss any of this further with one of our cancer nurses, you can do so on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m. They're very insightful and will do all they can to help.

    We do have some prostate cancer members on the forum so hopefully those who have gone down this route will be along soon to offer their support and advice.

    Kind regards,
