Welcome to HW
Looks like you found this site about the same place in your PC journey as I did and it has been a life saver for me. I have made many good friends that I hope to meet in person soon. Many friendships made here will last forever.
Looks like you did a good job of monitoring your rising PSA. I did the same as I am the 3rd generation of PCa and knew it was not if but when I would be diagnosed, but until I did my research on PC after my diagnosis I knew nothing about this terrible disease other than the PSA was important. My son at 34 had his first PSA after my surgery and I pray that if he is ever diagnosed a cure for this cancer most men don't want to talk about will be found other than ripping or burning out your prostate.
