got the news today, third psa after radiation is still undetectable (<0.1). uro was more interested in talking ED than psa. he also said he sees no reason to do another before six months. do have to see radiation dr. next month though, probably to answer the questions about how many trips i make to the toilet each day and how long i can hold it.
