Hi Guys,

After one year My latest PSA test is another <0.01. Now if I could just stop leaking. I saw my doc yesterday and he said just be patient. I've waited 13 months so I guess a few more will do.
Best wishes to all.

Len

Dacama,

The doc told me that everyone is different.and it can take up to perhaps 18 months.
I really hope that it stops by Christmas. I currently use 1-2 pads per 24 hours. I am dry at night.

Len,
 
Same here - blood drawn today for 1 year PSA (ok, minus a day), still at 1-3 pads per day, dry at night unless I drink a beer - then all bets are off.
 
I'll be reporting on the results next week, but it is a new lab, so lets just toss in a new variable.

good news on your zero. Leaking is a *****.  I'm at 2 years going 2 - 3 pads per 24 hours. Meeting with Uro to set up male sling surgery. Any option to be dry has to be pursued in my mind. Carry On.
