Got my PSA test results back and I am still ZERO after surgery 2 years and 2 months ago.

As we all know, this is one test you want a zero.

Just continue in getting those Zerrrros. I recall seeing in one of my surgeon’ charts (in 2000), a reference mark on the bracket of 2 years post RP indicating {PSA=<0.03 = high probability of cure}.
You have all the reasons to believe in it and I really hope the best for you.

Congratulations.

PS; is "1949" your birth year? so am I.

Yes,VGama I am also a 49er. Just think TV was invented that year.
I suppose I can say that I definitely have a high probability of cure, pre RP PSA was 22 and I have maintained a PSA of 0.008 since post op on 7/23/2009.

Thanks for the info.

This is indeed a test where you want a zero. Congratulations on that!!! Are you still on a 6-month PSA schedule or does this graduate you to annually?

Thanks for the congrats. Have not graduated to annually yet, still 6-month PSA schedule.
Perhaps my uro thinks that I need to be on 6-month schedule is because my PSA preop was 22.
OK by me, I like my 0.008 PSA since July 23, 2009.
