    I would currently already be happy for a reliable option of getting my PSA checked. Easy in the US and Germany, major problem in Québec.

    Mostth, SRT is your last chance of a cure, it can only be done once and is significantly more efficient combined with HT.

    IMO past the age of 50 or 55 healing is an elusive goal. Recitfy one ailment and it won't be long until the next shows up. All depends on what we make if it.

    Well done, Duck. Maybe I should have tried a little harder getting a similar deal. For $400 I'd be in, but wouldn't want to pay $5000 out of pocket.

    Agreed. Any lab does the job, especially if PSA doesn't drop below 0.1. Mostth, I'd retest at a different lab asap if I were you. Best of luck!

    Carmel, the PSA doubling time would be of interest. Your husband could wait with HT until his PSA rises above a level of 5 or even 10, which might be some years down the road. This would better his...

    They wanted $5150 international rate from me and their sales representative didn't bother to ask back why I stopped answering. I think it's exclusively for Americans or the rich.

    I don't think SSRI anti-depressants are particularly good stress relievers. The stuff is meant to lift moods and takes couple weeks to be fully effective. How about Venlafaxine / Effexor instead?...

    Busby, from your signature, PSA 2017-05 5.65, 2018-11 11.8. That's 11.8/5.65=2.08 in 18 months => your pre-op PSADT is around 1.5 years.

    Post-op you could try a regression model to estimate a...
