That is a fine result Jeff. Congrats! Like you, I long for a beer. You are probably right about how fast it will go through. Perhaps so fast, the alcohol won't even give us a buzz. Got 6 Heineken cooling in the fridge for the big day when I decide it is OK for a cool one. Even water at this point seems to flow faster than Niagara Falls or the Niagara River that I live close to. Never thought I would pee like a kid again but there it is. Just have to control when and where................

Pre-op PSA down to 5.28 which I atribute to visualization techniques and a new vegetarian diet.

Pathology - 10/14/09 Gleason Score remained at 3+3 = 6 as it was when originally diagnosed. There were no positive margins. Tumors were found in both lobes and involved 3-5% of the prostate. There was no Seminal Vesicle, Perineural, Lymphovascular or Lymph node involvement, and the bladder neck was also cancer free.
