I just had my first post surgery psa in February, and mine came in at .05. Was a little disapointed too, thought that perhaps since it was supposedly contained, and you can see my stats, that it would be much lower. So, like many others here, already a little anxious about the 6 month test in May. My dr said it could go down, stay the same, and hopefully not go up. I wonder if some of our differences is in the testing itself, but not qualified enough to know how to answer that. I agree with Bro. Tony, enjoy that life!
