Hi Everyone,
 
Thank you all so much for your responses while we were waiting for the latest PSA. We wnet to the Dr. and it is still at 0.3. The doctor was even a little suprised that it had not gone up this time. I am thrilled that it didn't rise, but can anyone offer any reasons that it didn't? Is it possible that the cancer will just stop growing for a little while at least.
 
Thank you again for all of your support
 
Warmest wishes
Diana
