Hi, this is Dr Ansari, welcome to JA.

May I know what type of machine you are referring to here? I suppose your husband has Ca Prostate. This cancer spread locally than in remote areas, most commonly it is to bone, so in follow up pelvic imaging is also important.

he has had prostate cancer for about 6 years and it is being kept as a watching brief using PSA levels which are between 16 and 20. his problem is not his prostate but his reduced urination. he keeps a measure of all liquid intake and all output and the output has reduced and his ankles and legs have swollen.
