had my one year psa test yesterday, undetectable. I consider this a milestone. Still have to use a pad a day but still have hope I'm one of the long time guys. I have been on site for over a year but do not post to often. I get alot of good vibes from site though. In the beginnig of all of this healingwell got me though alot. Keep talking and picking each other up.
Sweet dreams are made of this. As always Carry On.
