    Somewhere else I basically posted that if Quinton Tarrontino made a XXX vampire movie, they would give the guy have a prostate biopsy before filming the money shot. It's can be that graphic.

    Hello.

    Just wanted to give my update. I had my first post Brachy PSA a few weeks back. It was down to 0.45. The Radonc seemed very pleased with this. He stated that this was a very good sign.
