Well, I was most pleased to get the result after 6 months post op. The reading was < 0.04 or undetectable. I guess my membership in the zero club is still intact.



Keep well,

Regards,

Bill

Thank you to everyone who replied. I feel privileged to have a membership in the zero club as there are so many who are having difficulties, but it must be reported so that others who are earlier on in this process can derive some hope that it can work out well. I have my fingers crossed that it will remain at zero for me when I get my next PSA done in 6 months.

Keep well,
Regards,
Bill
