    I suspect it may be 'many' men. The fear of surgery or frying + a myriad of side effects must be quite motivating. Some, like ASA, have been at it for a decade or more. How he's not a basket case is...

    A 'bit", is quite an understatement, star. :mrgreen:

    I agree with ASA's advise....a walk in the woods, or the beach, and just chilling out, will do you & your husband a world of good. :up:

    That is one fine analysis, Michael, and befitting the detailed studies performed by OTS. You must be getting close to 65 ;)

    Thanks, Djin...

    I'm a walking, talking case study for the above, it seems.

    Good discussion and valuable input.

    Not to belabor a point that has been discussed ad nauseam, I really don't believe a 0.078 PSA almost four years after surgery can be labelled BCR....bu if it makes you feel better, so be it. :roll:
