Hello Everyone...just a note to let you know I got a 0.010 on my recent PSA test that marked 19 months since my da Vinci. Everything seems to be going right for me as my AUS is still holding very well also. The penile implant functions and serves its purpose without failure. So, all in all, I can't really complain. Wish everyone Good Luck and hope you have had a happy Thanksgiving and looking forward to a joyous and Merry Christmas.
