:-)  I just got back from my 19th month post op PSA visit, and I am relieved to be able to renew my zero club membership for another six months!  Dr. Lance is still in awe that I had 65% of my prostate full of cancer, but that it had not spread. I hold the record here in eastern Virginia. I asked for and recieved a copy of the Pathologist post op examination, and will use it to help get life insuarance after the two year report comes back negative!  turn
 
Summer is here!
