Just got results back from 6 months post surgery PSA--<0.07; so far, so good. Continent about 99% of time, but yesterday, allowed the bladder to get real full and had unknown leakage which really surprised me when I realized wet underwear. ED is another issue, but life down there is slowly returning, with emphasis on slowly. Guess it may take the full 2 years!
Age 61
PSA: 12/09 7.3 (Proscar) -- 7/10 9.06 (Proscar)
Biopsy 9/13/2010
Diagnosed 9/20/2010
One of 12 cores positive: <5%

RRP at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN 12/15/2010
Gleason 3 + 4 with tertiary grade 5
Tumor confined to the prostate
Surgical margins negative

Catheter removed 01/03/2011
Pad free with min leakage 01/18/2011

Congratulations! I'm in pretty much the same boat as you at 6 months post surgery.
