Dr's are a bit crazy! Paul has been to his Physician for an annual, the HAZ-Mat Doc for HIS manditory annual, the Uro for HIIIS... annual and of course, the Andrologist for HIS eyes annual. Oh yes, and the annual he had done in February. There must be a sale on PSA testing!!!!

Let's see:

Twice a year physicals (the second due to high bp).

Twice a year FAA's.

Dermatologist thrice a year (due to light skinned white guy).

Dentist thrice a year (due to bad teeth).

Not to mention PSA checks. 

If I don't live forever, this is going to seem like a waste of time and money!

Good Grief!  Is it worth it?  (The FAA's are - I have to earn a living.)

Who would have thought, those many years ago.


August of 2006, PSA up to 4.2 from 2.7 one year ago. 
October free and total PSA 12% free and 5.0 total.
A month, or so later, 4.7.
Late in the year decide on Image Guided IMRT.
Begin 43 treatments on January 23, 2007 and finish on March 23.
Four month post treatment PSA is 1.9.
Seven month PSA is 0.8.
