I had Davinci robot removal of the prostate 13 months

I had Davinci robot removal of the prostate 13 months ago with good success but PSA went from .01, .02,,.05 and now .1. My regular doctor said after my blood test said I may have an infection-UTI. Since I have no prostate can infection cause my PSA to rise ?

Hi.....I had my prostate removed via robotic method 4.5 years ago. The cancer was contained within the prostate with no signs of spreading etc. Since then I have had my PSA checked every 6 months and this past year switched to annual. All tests have been normal . That said that considered a cure . Iam 63 years old. My email YYYY@YYYY Thanks

We have just come from the Doctors office. My husband is stage 6 on the Gleason scale. They are recommending removal of the prostate with robotics in Celebration Florida. Is this our best option. Should he have a Scan of the rest of the body first. They are not recommending any scans.
