A out of the Roof:
-wishing you all the best for a good result... am warming up a zero club chair for you (PSA<0.10 - there is no such thing as an absolute zero)
- keep in mind, each doctor has their own routine for post-op tests - depending on the numbers and pathology report - 3 months - then graduate to 6 months and then yearly and ...
-in Canada, we generally have to wait 2-3 weeks to get the PSA results - they are currently working on making it faster -
- write down the numbers they tell you - remember "less than" if stated - and where the zero's and dots are... ie. 0.05 is not the same as 0.50 or 0.005... and read it back to them - they can read the numbers wrong... and it is easy to get befuddled in a stressful situation...
- we have had posters here on HW panicking due to receptionist/nurse error...
