Had my 1 year anniversary test results today, not what I expected. I've been undetectable with 0.01 at 3,6 & 9 months.
Today's news was 0.04. I'm a little unnerved. Yes, I know I am blessed and there are people here that would give eye teeth for the number. But.... I'm concerned of why it would quadruple over the last 3 months. The doc said the cliche "it is what it is", real soothing :( He did say there are other sources of PSA in the body, glands in the neck and actually some in the penis. I've never heard of this.
Any insight from the PSA guru's would be appreciated. I'm also doing searches in the post archives as well.
I'm just really disappointed because I convinced myself that I had put this behind me. Now I'm not so sure.
Thanks for any feed back guys.
