I am going back for my next psa in September. I just know that it will be good news. I was soaking wet before I left the building. I used one pad on the 4 hour trip back home, and on my second one of the day right now. It was a different feeling to go to the bathroom and it feels different, now that I have to remember to go to the bathroom.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me get through this and I know you will all be there for the other hurtles I have to cross also.
God bless you and keep you. Till next time
