Well, the saga continues.  Had my PSA done today after meeting with the ED Dr.  He talked me into trying the shot.  It hurt a little but with fantastic results and no problems.  I thought the clock was turned back a year and a half.  Will get the PSA results in 7 days.
 
Take care everyone

Good for you Mika. Shots take some practice to get the technique and dosage right. Start low and work up. Its really worth it...
