Good news. I just got back this afternoon from my last post surgery PSA check up. It's 0.03. My uro said that their machine can read as low as .01. My last check was 0.05. I am elated about
the results of my post PSA. I pray that this will continue. I am still on 6 months monitor. As for the ED, it's getting there. Sometimes the Levitra works, sometimes it doesn't. He gave 3 samples of Cialis (20mg) and the everyday Cialis (5 mg). I intend to try these next week, see what's the difference.
