At 7 weeks post op (when testing done) as expected the good news was <0.01 (undetectable) PSA level -- woohoo on that.
Also the Mystery Of The Stone is continuing. It was a Calcium Oxalate stone which is usually created in the kidneys and especially at the size of it (1 cm x .5 cm) would have been 'Noticed' as it passed.
My PA speculated that maybe it was passed to bladder during post-surgery while still on Oxycontin or morphine, but possibly could have just formed in bladder.
She recommended X-ray of Kidneys next time I go for PSA test to see if anything can be seen.
And now have in-hand some Cialis samples and prescript
ion for 30 x 5mg Free Cialis --nice!
