I am not really stressing too much about
it this time. Three months ago when it happened I was a little rattled.
I had it checked a week later and it was <0.1 Really the reason I was rattled was this. My pathology didn't look flawless and my surgeon told me when I came back in 6 weeks, "if you ever lost my 'less than' to call me." I needed it checked every three months for 2 years.
This time I am just not all that concerned about
it. I'll just wait for the next one before I concern myself too much.
It has always been the same lab that has done it. My urologist doesn't seem too concerned about
it so, I haven't started checking my guns to decide which one its gonna be.
Real reason is to find out if its pretty normal for people to have this type of deal happen and not worry about
