Welcome aboard Wildcat and welcome to our world of WAITING!!!
You have had your PSA test and had to wait for the results,
now you will have a biopsy and have to wait for it then you will have to wait for the results.
We all know, we all have been through it and still wait for regular PSA tests to see if our treatment is working. One test at a time, one foot in front of the other, one waiting period after the other.
I had 3 biopsies over 12 years before I got PCa. So I waited 12 years before joining this group.Hopefully you will not have to join our club and are just visiting but we are here for you now and in the future.
