On April 7, 2018 I will celebrate my 8 year anniversary of being prostate free.
At my annual physical on 12/29/2017, my doctor gave me the latest blood test results.
Once again my PSA is undetectable. Less than 0.02 ng/mL.
The lab statement for the PSA test states; PSA values less than 0.02 ng/mL cannot be accurately measured with Beckman Coulter Dxl method and will be reported as less than 0.02 ng/mL.
It has been undetectable since shortly after my RALP surgery and hopefully will remain undetectable.
Happy New Year to all my brothers in this fight.
Good Luck to all of us.
