Well, we had August surgeries, thereby allowing us to follow those folks in one thread.
Since my upcoming PSA will be in about 2 weeks, I figured I'd start this thread for us nervous nellies about to have a PSA test.
My signature indicates my status. The short version: 0.01 then 3 months later 0.02.
Hoping it's not a trend. I can see being nervous under any circumstances. If my PSA had been <0.01 (undetectable) I would still be just as worried, hoping the string remains unbroken!
