Just got my 18 month PSA, it remains 0.01, I am relieved. You forget how stressful waiting on results can be until it is time. I appreciate everyone here for being with me during the PC experience, I am glad I found HW, it has been a source of encouragement and solace during these times. Thankfully continence was never an issue, and the ED seems to be slowly improving.
