All,

Just got the results. Undetectable @ < 0.014. Very Good News! Doc is now focused on ED with a four-pack sample of 50mg V. Got to check with my family doc first because I'm on hypertension meds and don't want to cause probs, particularly at the wrong time. :-)

See ya,
Garth

Good News Garth...keep them coming in at zero. Check with your doc about the ED meds and if given the clear signal...go and enjoy life and forget about PCa.
You are beating back cancer, so hold your head up with dignity
