Hey Guys ,
Long time no see  !!  reading some of your post that way i do not miss out on anything "FUN" haha nono
 
i was relocated from NY to another country, so been a bit busy, however went for my yearly checkup and of course amongs the tests is the good Ole' PSA.
the last year been uneventful (just the way we like it ) last PSA without a change @< 0.004 and ED is almost back to normal operation without Oral Meds or any other aids.
 
i hope all of you are doing well and with time and patience (even at times the road seems long and winding) you get there!
 
thanks again for the ear! GB
