Got the call for my results on my first PSA test 4 weeks after surgery from (which was last week) Dr. Catalona office at Northwestern. My Urologist will give me one at 6 weeks then 12 weeks… I was walking down the beach at my mobile rang I saw the doctors office calling me assuming with the results for my first PSA test last week…When the nurse starting talking I knew it was going to be good news…Well my first test at 4 weeks is undetectable big fat 0, zero, nothing….
Perhaps I am premature but I did call the Carolina Regional Cancer Center and cancelled my consultation appointment for radiation treatments tomorrow and will reschedule if need be after my 12 week PSA test…. I am happy for the moment and will take that hope for the day….I will live large tonight and have fried grouper for dinner!!!!

Best to all as we wrestle with this beast

Congratulations on reaching a number that we all, interestingly enough, would have hated receiving on a test in school!

You've got to get this printed on a T-shirt... "ZERO... ZERO... YOU'RE MY HERO!"

Congrats on that 0. It is a wonderful feeling when we hear that 0. Only bummer is we have to keep repeating the tests always with a little doubt in our mind.
But for now eat the Grouper!!!! Wish I could join you since I love Grouper.

Great News. Congrats. May the 0's keep coming. Enjoy the grouper. Have a little wine too, or a nice cold one.

Ashville is a great town and about 3 hours from where I am in Atlanta... We are heading home in the morning....I will take each zero as it comes but it is a good feeling at least until I take the 6 week, 12 week, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month then the 12 month after surgery...So for me 7 PSA tests the first year after surgery....Will need to refine my stress techniques :-)
