Had my 6 month PSA after robotic surgery and I'm proud to say I'm still a member of the zero club. My 3 month was reported as less than 0.1, undetectable. This one was reported as 0.01 using the chemiluminescence method, whatever that is. Looks like zero to me.

Still 100% continent, which I was from the day after the fathered came out. Potency steadily improving with daily cialis and vacuum pump but still has a way to go.

All in all I'm very pleased with my surgeon and my recovery. Good luck to everyone.
