Just had 6 month psa, still a member of the zero club. Still working on the ED issues, it is slowly improving. No other problems. As much as I have put PC behind me I always will feel  that you are never totally cured of cancer and it may wait for years to jump back in your life. Regardless I realize I am lucky to have my life back. Regards to all.

Glad to see you have renewed your membership into the club. You are indeed right we are not just lucky we are blessed to be able to live another day and fight this disease. I encourage everyone when you have a new lease on life to enjoy it. I will pray you have many more years in the zero club.

Peace love and grace
