    Good news

    After 4 years post surgery PSA continues at <0.05 as tested by MSK.

    I just want to say that this forum and it's members have helped me immeasurably with their knowledge and understanding.

    The anxiety I feel leading up to the every 6 month test gets a bit overwhelming cause you never know.

    Thanks to my terrific wife for the support she gives me without her I'd be a fish on the sand.

    Anyway I don't mind saying I feel better for the moment and I'll just kick back and put all those thoughts on the backburner for now.

    Peace. jd
