I'm gonna read that as you and the doc saying the psa is zero, so welcome to the Zero Club. Routine PSA testing is a normal part of after-care, probably for the next 5 years or so, so might as well get used to it. Oh, by the way, don't be surprised if the doc sneaks in an unexpected DRE, that's normal also... tongue
