Patient concerns

arrow
I was having high psa > 8.00. It was Benign Prostate Hyperlasia. Repeated infection of prostate over many years. TURP of prostate done in Nov'2015. Prostate was 30 mg approx then. Still psa remained at 8.27 after TURP. No malignancy in biopsy. In Sept'2016 12 core biopsy of prostate done as psa remained high; biopsy reported no malignancy. On veltride-0.5 since Sept16 . Psa was 5,47 in between and now again it is 6.28. Doctor has given now dutas-0.5mg replacing veltride. He told that after 3 to 4 months if psa remains high beyond 7.00 then MP-MRI to be done. No other problem of infection or pain or swelling. Am I on the right track ? Why PSA remains so high high even 16 months after TURP ? I am not having any urge for sex. Doctor has given tadalagress20 mg ( alternate days) due to loss of libido, which I have not yet taken. Is it safe to take tadalgress alongwith dutas-0.5 mg ?

First of all PSA of 8 is not very high. U already underwent turp n prostate biopsy. No malignancy was detected. Now just relax. No need to take Dutas. Just do PSA every 6 months.
