Hi Everyone,

I just had a call from my Uro's nurse to say that my PSA I had drawn yesterday came back @ <0.04 which is as low as their assay reads.

I am feeling very blessed today!

This board is a large part of my daily routine and I appreciate everyone's time and opinion that contributes to the board.

FANTASTIC!!!!!!!
Age: 63
 
Gleason: 8 (5+3) Biopsys ranged from 90% to 100%
Refused surgery and hormone therapy. Doctor really made an argument for benefits of hormone therapy, I could not accept the consequences.
 
28 IMRT treatments.  Originally scheduled to get seed implants but doc decided that due to my prognosis High Dose Rate Brachythrapy was a better path to attempt.
 
PSA: 13
 
Let the chips fall where they may.
