Jack, looks like you were about my age when you had surgery, around 56? If so, that is even more encouraging. You don't happen to remember any of your original stats when you diagnosed, for example your PSA, tumor grade, or gleason score. I would be thrilled right now to think that I too could make it 75 or beyond. How's the rest of your general health, if I may ask?
