i had my last IGRT treatment at the end of august last year and my last shot of lupron two weeks later. three months ago my testosterone was 6 and my PSA was zero.  today i expected my testosterone to be 200 maybe 250 and my PSA to be between 1 and .5.
 
well my testosterone was 540 and my PSA .2.  i didn't get much of a reaction from my uro but my radiation oncologist says the numbers are exceptionally good.  i have to see him in august and will have another PSA result then.
 
so i guess i'm happy cool .

Very cool!  Can I borrow some of that extra "T"?  I feel like the guy on the commercials, and today even Mike Ditka was on the radio pushing testosterone.

ed: At 540 you could be considered a dangerous young man. 
 
It sounds like all of that blood, especially sweat, and tears is working.  Good news seems to be hard to come by on this board recently.  Congrats.
