Dutch you found the typo in my blog "Other than the above side effects the treatments caused changes in diet, life style or sexual activity..." I looked for it last night but couldn't find it. Do you happen to know which of the articles I wrote had it in it? I did find a number of other grammatical errors I hope I fixed all of them. I find it very hard to see errors I make in my writing unless I can give it a number of days between readings. Thanks for the help.
Highest PSA 6.3
Gleason 7 (3+4)
Pre treatment PSA 4.5

It wasn't in your blog - it was in your initial post in this thread in the last paragraph.   Dutch
