Just returned home from the 7 hour trip to my Uro. 6 weeks after Robotic Prostatectomy, my PSA came in at 0.011. The roll gist thinks it will go to undetectable after the next 3 month visit. He als said that I have about a 5 to 7% chance of recurrence because of my tertiary 5 score. Sounds like good odds to me. He only wants to see me 2 more times than is happy for my local GP to keep up the checks.
He said that so far I had made a remarkable recovery and I can go back to squash, basketball, bike riding, mowing the lawn(have to think about that one), in fact go back to normal physical existence.
A good day!
