New to the forum.  I've been lurking for a while but first time to post.  A great group of people and good information available here.  Thanks.  My surgery was 8/1/08.   My first PSA after surgery is tomorrow.  I feel very fortunate with my outcome so far.  I'm confident that this PSA will be good news.
