Just had my 6 monthly appointment with the urology nurse and blood test results all normal with psa being undetectable.
So I can enjoy the great English summer in all it`s glory until my next test in October. I am now nearly 2 years out from surgery and consider myself lucky. I am still awaiting my friend`s biopsy results, as in my last post I mentioned that his psa was 818. I shall do my best to support him.
 
All the best from sunny England.

I think it can go into the thousands, but I am not an expert, perhaps some one with more knowledge can comment.
