Hi mjr,
Always nice to hear from you. And always nice to say Hi to another City of Hope Ulum. It looks like you are still doing well ~ and that's great news.

I am not sure what you want to change, but most everything in your profice is changed in you control panel. That's on the second from the top blue bar next to where you log off. You will see different edit options there...For example you can select "edit profile" change anything you want, and click "submit" at the bottom of the scree. I hope this helps.

Personally I do not think it matters to much which test you get, they are both effective. I am sure there will be some folks disagree, but I would not personally make a big issue out of and I am a metastatic gleason 9 guy. I do think once a year it would probably be good to get the sensitive if you have a hospital or clinic that offers it.

peace to you
