Default Prayers needed for Dad

Dad had prostate cancer about 10 years ago. Had his prostate removed. Had 10 years of good blood test results every 6 months. This last one his PSA shot up to 13. They tested a couple weeks later again, and it was higher than that. I think just above 20. They sent him for a scan yesterday. I am going with him and mom tomorrow for results. He is 76 but still very active. I think he can still work me into the dirt.

Appreciate prayers and experiences. I know over the years many have shared their experiences with success and recurrence of this crap down the road after initial successful treatment. I searched for some of the old posts, but they are buried in way to many threads. Do not worry about the good or the bad, I just want to know what others have seen or experienced. My Dad isnt on the green screen. He is a saved strong Christian man. That is the only comfort in this whole ordeal.

This is not news in our family outside of Mom, Dad, my wife and kids at his request. So appreciate the consideration for those of you who know me.

I hate that for him and will send up a prayer.

I had prostate cancer 21 years ago at age 51 and had mine removed. PSA levels nonexistant for 20 years UNTIL last year, and my PSA was measured at 22.5. A few weeks later it was 28.9 !

I had a hormone shot and 35 radiation treatments last fall, and the PSA is 0.5 or something. I go back today for a checkup.

Tell him to relax. It is not a death sentence. He can get treated and live to be irascible like me!

"My Dad isnt on the green screen. He is a saved strong Christian man. That is the only comfort in this whole ordeal."
This is what is important. Life is full of trials and tribulations, dealing with them through Christ is the answer to peace.
In the name of Jesus I remind your father who the great physician is! Just a bump in the road for a man of faith, believe and you shall receive brother! Amen.

Prayers for your dad and family. My dad went through it 15 years ago. He's 79 now and still going strong. They were able to get rid of the cancer without removing his prostate.

Prayers sent.. Stay on top of it..

This sounds a lot like what my Dad went through.. He had it at 56. He took radiation and was clear for 21 years.. 2 years ago at the age of 77 his PSA was a 23.. It was stage 4 cancer.. He had his prostate, bladder, 25 lymph nodes and part of his colon removed.. He was clear for 2 years so we thought..

We found out this past January that MDA had somehow, after many scans, missed that it had spread to his liver. When they found it in January it was already stage 4....
He fought it with all he had. We buried the greatest man I ever knew on June 9th.. My hero..
