Thanks Lee, Buddy, & Murphy,

I go this afternoon to get my 18 month PSA test, so I'm a little nervous as usual.

Diagnosed at age 60
PSA went from 2.2 to 3.8 in 14 months
2 of 14 cores positive at 10%
Gleason 6(3+3), negative DRE, neg. boundaries
DaVinci surgery on 02/23/06

Husband age 66

DaVinci Surgery 8/2/06 - Austin, TX w/Dr. Randy F.A.G.I.N.
