Spin - you are indeed wonderful. My husband has been "on my case" about it, too! Especially after all he's been through. Along with just the regular yearly stuff. A reminder that it's that "yearly stuff" (and thanks to a special blood test) that put us all here in this forum in the first place.
This is a really important gift from Glen to all of us - with the technologies available today for prevention, it really is time to pick up the phone and get "on the other side." That goes for PSA tests, biopsies, colonoscopies, everything.
Thank you, Spin, for being one of the "gentle" backbones here at HealingWell.
Husband age 66
PSA on 5/1/06: 4.2 (had doubled in 13 mos. and rising monthly)
DaVinci Surgery 8/2/06 - Austin, TX w/Dr. Randy F.A.G.I.N.

At pathology - 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
