Got the call from my doctor today and my psa went from .32 prior to tomotherapy to .14.  I will be checked again in sixty days to see where the psa level is then.  I feel very good that the psa dropped that much in one month.  tongue I have to say that I am still feeling tired from the treatments but each day gets better and better.  Thanks for all your support.

Bob,
 
Congratulations on your lower PSA test result. Looks like you're getting things together. Just keep the downward trend going.
Wishing for nothing but zeros in your future.

Great news and in just 30 days to have it drop that much sounds really good. Here's hoping that your 60 day test is undetectable and their aim was true. We have followed somewhat of the same path and it took me a while to get all the energy back and even today I have days I feel a little tired but I am also getting older as they say.
Continued sucess!
