Happy New Year to All,
Thought I would drop a quick update. Had my 9 month PSA and it came in at below 0.010 (undetectable). I have mine taken every three months for 2 years because of a single small dirty margin. I find that it gets pretty emotional toward test time but maybe it gets easier.
My continence is almost normal. Still have minor issues during the work day. I think I will soon be free of protection. I seem to be going back and forth with this.
ED is and has been certainly acceptable. 50 Viagra helps and 100 mg gets er done that's for sure.
My pleasure is better when there are several days between encounters.
Wish you all the best and thanks for your continuing friendship and support.

Fair to Good results with Viagra, side effects are bothersome at times.
