Glad you made it thru another PSA test, even if it was a little more stressful than others.
I am pretty resigned that I will probably not die of PCa but it is now a part of my life that I will always have to deal with.
Getting old sucks sometimes.
When we were younger, we never really though much about
death or medical issues but as time goes on, it seems like every year it is something new. I never would have thought that in 2015, I would be a PCa survivor, have ED issues and have to squeeze a controller in my balls to pee every time.
Worrying is kind of like riding a rocking horse, it gives you something to do but never gets you any where.
I got word last Friday that my PSA is still 0.1, not up but not down. It is what it is. When I have to have my 3 month PSA test, I just get it and say to myself, it is what it is. If it goes up, then I will deal with it then but I am not going to let it rule my life until that time.
