There you go again, way out ahead of the situation. It just is what it is. Knowing you from listening to you on HW, whether or not you know what your PSA is, you will think about it every day anyway.
On the positive side, if it has dropped, you will feel great relief for a while. On the negative side, if it has risen, you know what it is, and all the worrying about it will do no good. Get a script for some happy pills and go on the cruise.
Don't let this disease rob you mentally as well. Just decide to live each day to its fullest, and when you can't, live it as much as you can. Your cruise will be just as great whether your PSA has risen or not.
You've got a lot of good years left, no matter what the PSA does. Enjoy every day.
