Got last week's PSA results back today.
 
Good news, "undetectable" from Bostwick.
Bad news, the uro still refuses to do ultrasensitive.
 
Guess I'll get "nothing" for Christmas. Works for me!

Great way to enjoy christmas. My ex-uro only did the x.x so now I go to my gp to get the x.xx. Reason the ex did the x.x is that was what the machine they have in house does. a money thing.

142 Yes GREAT news buddy. I have the same problem with my Uro. He said that my insurance requires that the lab work be sent to this particular lab and they do not have ultra sencitive PSA.

I just dont get it. Hope to see you in April at GFMPH
