Dale can you get psa tests sooner than this, somewhere else? Have you looked into possible future drug therapies and options? Does your current doctor(s) mention anything thus far? Have you considered a juncture level of psa that you might do something different??? Do you know about these immuno-therapies or Leukine and newer things?? Just asking.
