in the Zero club! (see sig) The sword of Damocles is still hanging after 2 1/2 years, and with the PSA I started out with, no one is happier than me.

I don't post much these days, but I lurk here several times a week, glad to see there are still a lot of folks that have been here a long time still helping out those who come here in shock after a diagnosis no one wants to hear.

Best wishes to all my PCa brothers!
