Got my 2nd Post surgery PSA this afternoon, Less than 0.04. I can not be any happier with the way things have gone for me. My PSA is undetectable 6 months after surgery, I have total continence, and can have a usable erection with 50 mg of Viagra, " thats down from 100mg of Viagra just one month ago".
My next Post surgery PSA is on June 18, 08. I'll be hoping for more 0.0's.
