Bacterial Infection - When to take PSA

05/08/2009

Question:

My father recently had a bacterial infection which he left untreated until he was nearly dead (he thought he had the flu). Needless to say, it really took a toll of his health. During that time he had a PSA test of 22. After 6 weeks he had another test of 14. My question is: Is it possible that he still has some recovering to do before relying on the test? As he is still not back to his pre-illness health, which was excellent.
