Each case is different. Guys with the gland in place get loger to reach to a nadir. The important is that once there PSA stays for long periods. I have no prostate and got to nadir PSA on the 13th month after the end of RT.

Hope for the best.

good news.....a celebration is always a good idea.

If you are in the D.C. area, how much of a surprise was the shaking to you?
