Today was my first check-up on the once a year schedule after Radiation.  Got another zero!!! It was same as last year, 0.04.  Couldn't be more pleased.  Now, if only get a little action on the ED side,.....

Way to go!!!!! There’s nothing finer than zeroes where PSA is concerned. Don’t sweat the ED issue, that normally gets better with time. I know a year seems like a lot of time, but didn’t it go by fast? I hope you have many more zeroes.

Thanks guys!!  It's comforting to have a group like this to share with.  BTY, I have a "signature" in my profile, but it's not showing up, and I haven't figured out how to up-date.  Any help?

The signature function is there, it's just a non-default function now. Meaning you have to check the box each time ato add the sig. before posting. Also, there's now a 400 character limit to the length, that may be the problem and require some editing and abbreviating to get it under that.
