Just got the results of latest post-LRP PSA... still 0.10, which is stable. The good news is the PSA level has been the same over the past three tests, since April 2010; however, I still am curious why after almost two years of post-surgery readings of 0.0, it went to 0.10. Oh well... at least it is not rising!! Have my annual appointment with uro-surgeon in about three weeks. Perhaps he might have some insight for me...

Don't know, but that is certainly good news overall.

It stinks to have detectable PSA but it is a great feeling when the PSA has not risen, I am hoping for the latter in my next test in a months time.

that is a pretty good report I think. It would be nice to be a zero but hey a stable .1 is the next best thing. Enjoy life my friend

peace to you
