I find myself a little on edge even when getting my blood pressure checked not alone PSA. I think it is most natural. The registering of PSA will take whom ever has it in a new direction of treatment - so it is only natural to be concerned each time the hurdle is met. Even though unlikely yours will rise, it is still a nerve kind of time. Hang in there!
