Here's mine:

Trying not to say anything other than Ack! But after over a year of undetectables, today I get the call from Erwin, who says it's "0.1, stable". Definitely 0.1, not less than 0.1. Previously it was <0.01, as they use the more sensitive test. He said don't worry, sometimes it goes up and down. I suppose this is true, but I don't recall reading about anyone here at HW having a PSA go up and back down without any treatment.

They wouldn't do anything until it goes above 0.1. Which I agree with. I told him I'd try not to worry. Next test is in Februrary.

sorry to hear that, dj. you know have one at .1, you will need to see 2 more readings with consecutive rises above .1 at this point, and for you sake, hope that doesnt happen. good luck to you, my friend

Thanks, Dave. I think I'll spend the next several months with fingers and eyes crossed.
