Well for all my friends here,, my six year PSA Test came in at less than 0.02 again!!! It feels good to be able to report this good news to so many of you who may be just starting your PC journey. I am a pretty typical case of someone who was diagnosed early.

Still issues with ED but the main thing is cancer free!

Let's party!!!!!

Party on!!!

Skeener
Age:  63 
Biopsy: May 09 showed 2 of 12 cores positive for prostate cancer -- 1 at 5% and 1 at 25%.  Cancer indicated as non aggressive.  Gleason Score: 3+3.
RRP on Oct 23/09 in London, Ontario.  Excellent surgeon. 
7 Weeks Post Op -  The fears I had about bad things about the operation and recovery did not materialise except of course ED!!.  Otherwise, everything went very smoothly.  Incontinence not a problem.  Wear a pad when out just in case. Pain was never a problem.
Pathology:  Unremarkable 
First followup PSA and Visit: Feb 11/10 - 0.0.
 
Next PSA May
Next doctor's visit in 6 months
