Can I have my barseat back in the club? When do you consider me a zero again? Last PSA reading is a 0.06, down from 0.41 pre-SRT.
Been going down steadily. My dues are all paid up... barkeep, get me a brew!!

Thanks, all

Man, paying for this round is getting expensive!!!

I visit the uro doc in a couple of days to go over results. Sure a lot more cheerful visit now than this time last year. Wasn't at all sure if the SRT would take or not. Hopefully did the trick.

Love that 0 club sign, Bronson
