I went at lunch time today and had my blood drawn for my PSA test. The hospital is just down the street from where I work.

It has been almost a year now since I finished the IMRT sessions. BT was in July last year.

The nurse just called me back. My PSA test result is 1.77 now. It's still headed down.
