I know the feeling going into the test, and the feeling coming out.  I was hoping you would tell me it gets better after 2 1/2 years.
 
Congrats.

Great news.  Good for you!  I had my first PSA today 90 days past surgery, so await the results this week.  Feels like my first post-graduate exam.

Congrats R&B,
 
Some times I think the jitters before the PSA test results are worse that the disease itself...........but the good result afterwards is better than sex tongue
Hope you'll have many more of those great test results.
All the best to you.
