I know I am very new here but wanted to say my first post surgery PSA came in at 0.01.
I am very happy with this number.

Thanks for all the cheers...I did not know what to expect so I had nothing special on hand to toast with. I am working on that. Actually, my Urologist is getting a nice bottle of red wine from me. I am 98% continent..but unfortunately 100% Ed'd (to be expected at this point.) He said that will take time. Anyways since I am married, sex is not an issue....LOL.

Gotta fix my signature line. Thanks again.
