Got good news from my uro today and have added a line to my signature to reflect the latest PSA results. Whew! Rightly or wrongly, I was sweating this one at the 10-month post-surgery mark.
Best wishes to all for similar good results.

added a subject for searching and archiving JC.

Thanks, guys.  I've been nervous lately because of some persistent back pain, and when I called for results and got put on hold for 15 minutes I was extremely unhappy and expecting the doc to come on the line with bad news.  I reallly can't express how much sharing experiences and ideas with everyone here at HW has helped me deal with this PCa business.  I just pray that science will soon find the magic elixir that will cure and eliminate this terrible disease once and for all for all of us.
