It may be because of how comfortable I am with my Dr. But, since mine was contained to the prostate and the all the labs came back clear for everything else they took out. Two 0.00 PSA's! I never worry about the cancer comming back.
I just want to get dry!!!
The best attitude to have is a positive one.
