Whew..

I was prepared to wait until Friday or Monday, but the doctor called this evening and the biopsy results are in, all negative. They found some inflammation persists in the prostate, which is responsible for the increased PSA. i'm over the top with relief, and ever so grateful for all the posts from all of you. At this point they want me to wait 4 to 6 months before repeating the PSA

Also, after one single episode of blood in my urine the morning after, i have had absolutely no blood, no discomfort, no pain, and no after effects.

I'm ready to go back to the gym on Friday, giving it one more day. And I will hug my grandson extra hard when I see him next week.

Thanks again....
