Congrats on the continuing good news.
I only drop by the forum occasionally these days.
Tomorrow I go to the lab for my annual PSA blood draw.
A week from tomorrow I go to see the urologist for the results.
I am expecting a continued "undetectable".
In April it will have been 5 years since by robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) by Dr. Joseph Smith at Vanderbilt. I was continent at 5 weeks and after 6 months no ED (with a little help from Cialis). Now, after nearly 5 years, I do not need Cialis. So I believe I have been very lucky. I will keep everyone informed of the PSA test results. Journey on brothers.
