For those of you who have been so supportive during my husband's brachytherapy treatment, his six-month results came in at 0.61!
He's scheduled back with his regular urologist in February and the specialist in June.
It has been a long and difficult road and I thank you for your support.

It is such a road! We were very interested in seeding, but were told we weren't candidates because of the intial location of the one cancerous section post-biopsy.

A big congrats, JustJulie. Now, that's a Thankgiving.
Husband age 65
PSA on 5/1/06: 4.2 (had doubled in 13 mos. and rising monthly)
DaVinci Surgery 8/2/06
T2a (at biopsy)
T4c (at pathology) w/cancer cell leakage into fatty tissue
Post-Surgical PSA on 10/3/06 - undetectable!
Update: 11/1/06 - perhaps bladder neck involvement; 30%-50% chance of recurrence
Future: PSA tests twice-yearly for now
