Hi,
 
Sorry for not being around too often, I guess its a good sign about letting go of the cancer fight. I do feel for everyone just diagnosed and waiting for a procedure and the long time veterans fighting this.
 
I just had my 2 year PSA work and still undetectable. The doctor had me do also a colonoscopy at 45, as I guess we are all higher risk for colon cancer. They found 5 polyps, rather large but seem benign. Will have the autopsy results next week.
 
Best wishes to everyone

nasso-

- I expect you meant to say "biopsy results" on your colonoscopy rather than the "a" word...

-congrats on the zero club membership - here's to a lifetime of zero's with PSA and lots of negatives with the colonoscopy.

hugs,
