0.01 whereas the prior 6 mo test was <0.01 or undetectable. Hoping that this is just testing blip. Going to get it re-checked in 6 weeks to see if that test measures differently.

Some assays have a lower limit at the 0.01, and the same laboratory got several types of assays. If worried you could inquire at the laboratory the limits of the assay used in your test. However, in PSA testing, the lowest value considered in all guidelines is that of <=0.01.
You sure are to celebrate this level in remission.

Congratulations
