UPDATE: I just got my 14 month PSA results. I just couldn't wait for the 15th month because I was sweating so hard over the rather large bounce (+1.8) I had. I swear this doom and gloom anxiety will kill me long before PCa can. Anyway I'm back to trending in the right direction now with 0.9 being my latest result. I'm left to assume my big bounce was due to the c-diff infection and/or that unexplained spike in Testosterone. Or maybe something else with my own journey. Either way I'm extremely pleased right now and feel I can breath easy for at least a little while. Thank you guys for your support.
*notes to self: Say my prayers... and trust Dr. King. If he isn't worried, I shouldn't be worried.
.9? Well if that ain't some fantastic holiday news! Makes it seem like indeed all the many variables we discussed played a part. Glad to hear it!
