I know it is expected while on HT, but it is still nice to say it .. undetectable again .. third time this year. I also had my testosterone checked for the first time. It is 26. Uro PA would like to see it lower but given an undetectable PSA we will stay the course. My wife was with me and she just about
fell out of her chair when he said he would like it lower.
I am switching to a 6 month Lupron injection at the end of the month .. might as well get as much as I can done in 2011 since I am way past my deductible for the year. Next year we are switching to a high deductible/HSA program so the next Lupron shot in 2012 is out of my pocket .. but pre-tax.
