I live in Ontario Canada. My prostate was removed by robotics in Oct/17.
I have been on Lupron every 3 months since. My PSA Readings fluctuate between 0.08-0.26. Of note, I am also on Celebrex for arthritic knees.
After I had had my PSA tested once, it showed the same.(5.2) My Dr. suggested that I refrain from any antibiotics for a few days and then have it redone.
I did this and to both our surprise, the PSA was down to about 0.08.
It appears to us that antibiotics can reflect a higher PSA.
This is for your information, for what it’s worth.
