Hi Magaboo, I wish you the best.
I am afraid I am heading in the same direction. When I saw my urologist three weeks ago, he mentioned that my last PSA (Sept 8) was 0.01 and everything looked very good. I asked whether it was <0.01 but I don’t remember getting an answer. I always request a copy of my test results. Last week I received them and it is actually =0.01. I am trying to e optimistic, but I can’t help thinking that it will keep rising. I started trying to find more information about treatment options and that’s how I found out about this forum.
Best of luck to all of us.

I caught your post an Magaboo's thread. Welcome to the best PCa support site on the web. Sorry you are here, but we are glad to have you. I was 44 at Dx too. When I look at your PSA numbers I have to think that you mean you are at 0.1. Mostly because 0.01 would not be cause for action.
The group you will meet here is like no other on the net. They are caring and compassionate in every way. And I am sure will welcome you as well. Look around and if you need anything, my EM is open to all.
