Well, another battle was won today against the cancer, but the war goes on. Some encouraging news for all those with stage 3T. Got my 6 monthly, after salvage RT, PSA rest result result today and I'm happy to be able to report that it is <0.04 (machine limit is 0.04). So for the time being, it looks like I'll be keeping my membership in the zero club. So, to all friends here that have stage 3T cancer, stay positive, the beast can be beaten.
All the best to all my friends here.
