Got the results of my 3 month PSA 0.07! I have put the whole ordeal behind me for some time now, so this result afirms it's finally over.
Alot of anxious moments the last 4 months, especially after surgery and the grim report given to my family as I was in recovery. People would say to me "if you have to have cancer prostate is the kind to have". Well that may be so, however it was little solice to me when you are told you have cancer.
I was at work today, phone rang, it was my friend telling me he was just diagnosed with PC. While talking to him my cell phone rings with the good news on my PSA. One person ending his ordeal and another starting, I can only hope he has as favorable results as I have had. I will be there if he needs a friend.
Wishing everyone on this forum the best.

Welcome to the Zero Club, brother! That's big news and great news. Yeah it's sad really, just how many new cases of PC that pop up in our real lives. Glad you are doing so well, hope it stays that way for you.

Doting; your dedication to your dad afirms the broad scope that cancer has, not just as a patient but also family and friends.It sounds like your dad is doing well in his fight. As I have put this episode of my life behind me I do realize in 3 months I will again have to deal again with the protocol of PC treatment. You and yor dad know all too well the waiting game, and I hope the result of each one to be positive for you. Mark.
