Since the doctors office contains the lab, I purposely drive there a few days after the blood is drawn. Inevitably, they ALAWYS leave of the "less than symbol (<) when giving me the number and that freaks me out. So I like to be there to see the (<) for myself. What really amazes me is that so many supposedly professionals have no idea what this symbol means. I have gone to yearly testing now that I have been undetecttable for 3 years, but it is still a stessful time.

Age: 58; PSA 3.3, free PSA 21%, Neg DRE, biopsy May 2011= 1/12 cores positive, Gleason 3+4+7, 30% of one core+.
Davinci RP, July 2011, downgraded to Gleason 3+3=6, 10% involvement, prostate 67 grams. All susequent PSAs <0.015. Now 61 years old.
Immediate urinary control, but ED for well over 13 months. Used daily Cialis, VED twice per day for 1 year and Bimix 2 times per week for 6 months. Basicaly resigned myself that ED was permanent although erections while sleeping always occured. At 14-15 months, erections started returning with just Cialis. At 16 months intercourse was easily possible with Cialis. At 2 years, "mental" erections started happening. Now at 3 + years, Cialis is not needed, but 1/4 of a 20 mg. tablet certainly helps. Having sex like I am in my 20's. Don't give up, ED resolution takes much longer than our doctors tell us!
