Hi Everybody.... been really busy since I went back to work 4 weeks ago. Got my first PSA results today < 0.1!!
Doc says that's the lowest I can get from the his lab. Works for me... next test every 3 months for first year.
Hopefully I will pull more of these out of my hat.
Good health to all! And thanks for being here through my journey!
