I have run the nomogram, using 0 months of Psa free time period. Yes I know I have a 4 in 5 chance (82%) of no BCR IN 10 years, and a 99% chance of Prostate Cancer Specific Survival,in 15 years, so that is a good thing . Of course I had to re run it to see what YHE 10 year number would have been had my original biopsy report of G6 held. Shouldn't have done that.
Anyway, I know intellectually, that I am in pretty good shape and the outlook is good. It's just a mental adjustment period I am, and I believe many men go through. It will work itself out.
@Caspar, don't worry, I'm crazy, but not fragile. I'm just getting it all out of my system.
