It takes time to get more relaxed about
the testing. Even still it never leaves the back of your mind. i just blew passed another test with good results. I was too busy to notice but couple weeks ago I am worried about
some hip pain I am experiencing. So a body ache got me a bit worried but it wasn't what I thought it could be. It is typical for the PSA test to be drawn every 3 months after therapy. And it is also typical for it to be pushed out as time wears on. Right now I get mine done every six months. In fact I don't even have a scheduled appointment yet for my November test.
Life is too good to get too worried about
these things. I just take it in stride...
