Hi, Alex. Just want to wish you all the best - it's going to be over before you know it! And all will be fine. Today, you may feel a range of emotions from anxiety to "let's get it over with." Remember, many of us felt this way - it's all normal. The time will pass quickly and the "waiting room" is full here of great folks who are pulling for you!
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
