I haven't posted anything since my successful sling surgery, September of last year. I've been busy having two hip replacements.
But that doesn't mean that I'd forgotten about my cancer.
I just got my latest PSA reading three years after surgery. It's 0.03, undetectable. I'm quite relieved, as my previous reading had gone from 0.02 to 0.03. (I know, that this is unfounded PSA anxiety, but I was worried, anyway).
