My first PSA 2 months after RRP was 0.022 which of course I am pleased however, I know that with a gleason 4+5=9 in the path report I must be very diligent and continually monitor my PSA. the Old Sailor
 
DX 7/09, 5 OF 28 cores PCa with 2 gleason 8. PSA was 5.5.   RRP at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville on 8/13/09.  No ext cap extension, all margins, sem ves and lymph nodes negative.  Perineural invasion only negative aspect of path report.  Dry immediately, working on ED.
