Well it's been a while since I have posted and been able to check in but wanted to post may latest results. As some of the long time members may remember my story that started in the fall of 2006, I had surgery in which all looked well only to have the surprize reacurrance 9 months later thus moving on to salvage radiation in the spring and early summer of 2008. Anyway my latest doctor appointment on March 17th turned out to be once again good results with a reading of <.06 which is as low as my clinic can read. I am now 9 months out from finishing the salvage radiation and so far so good and all looks well. I feel great and will continue to enjoy and cherrish each day of life.
Thanks for all the support over these past 30 months and here's hoping each and everyone has great sucess with thier treatments.
