I turned 69 yesterday, and am 18 months post-op. My Uro's office just called to give me my present. PSA test result is <0.01, undetectable, and my T level is 259. Six months ago it was 17 post-Lupron. Time to celebrate! Pass the blue pills!
All the best.

Good stuff Roger...

My doc still considers 263, my last T level measurement, to be low. But I am not complaining. My PSA is also undetectable and that too is a bit low ~ but in the good way...

Thanks, everyone, for your kind expressions. This latest result  to me vindicates my decision to treat this disease early and aggressively. Although I know better than to use the cure word, I do firmly believe that I have pushed PCa out of my everyday life. Again, thanks for the support.
All the best.
