Gee, so many good answers and so much good advice. Don't know where to start.
Actually, on the colonsocopy subject, going to start Monday on that with my Uro/Surgeon, see if he agrees that either he has already looked during the last surgery, or if he thinks with my radiation damage that it might make it more risky. My GP, wouldn't have as intimate knowledge aboout my current situation as the Uro would.
On the Vit D reading, just making my GP happy on that one, he likes to root around for issues, cant imagine why. I may be dead wrong, but I am expecting it to be at least in the normal range, without ever having taken any vitamins for it.
The "T" reading, I can only guess, that in the normal aging process it goes down over time, thus decreasing the desire level, but after almost 37 years of marriage to the same person, doesn't show up that way. Not that I have any intentions of pursuing HT, but I suppose a good base line is needed to guage things by.
On the PSA pending number, no real anxiety there, there really hasn't and isn't currently. I have resigned myself to the fact that in all likelihood, it has risen a good chunk in the past 6 months. It would fit the pattern of where my journey has been going, and it would mirror what my doctors are thinking. Don't think of my attitude on this as "giving up", its more of being deeply realisitic about bigger picture of things.
Thanks for all the good answers.
