Hi there Snake,
Welcome to our exclusive gentlemen's club. I know you had no choice in our PC membership but good thing you found us.
6 weeks post op for your first PSA test is pretty fast, most people who know more than me, say 3 months for the first test is better. After looking at your stats you should have no worries about the beast being gone and I would be shocked if you do not join our zero club. You had a low PSA and lower G6 grading so you are lucky and should be cancer free.
Besides you PSA worries how are you doing overall? You should be feeling pretty good after 6 weeks and we are here to help you through any side effects from the procedure. Keep in touch with us. BTW the door to the zero clubhouse is open waiting for you, and as the newbie you have to buy the first round of drink at the club bar.
I see that you live in PA, how far are you from Hilton NY? We are having a gathering next week we call GFMPH and if you want to come meet some of the crazier ones here for a day or 2 I do not think anyone will mind. Besides if you come you would be the new guy instead of me so I will not get stuck buying the beers for everyone.
BTW After your surgery do they still call you "Snake"? My wife has some new pet names for me like "Teenie weenie" and "Stubs" for starters
Good luck my new PC brother,
