I have been away from the board a long time...it's now two years since my robotic surgery - PSA last week a big fat ZERO..proudly I'm still a memember of that Club? Who's the president now? ED is pretty good and still using generic blue pills for recreation more than necessity. Hope all is well with all the gang...and people are beating this beast with each step....each and every day I thank my God and my Dr. for my lucky outcome. Doc says after non-detectables for two years your pretty much out of the woods....next PSA in 6 months.

God Bless & Merry Christmas

Hi Randy

A good holiday season and continuous Zeros are my wishes for your 2012.
Hope the V-pills continue its effect at your timing.

I'm still on Active Surveillance....will be 3 years in March. I've had two biopsies since my first when I was diagnosed. the second and third ones were very thorough, and no cancer was detected. My PSA has been steady, except for the last one, six months ago; it rose from 2.5 to 3.6. I have an appointment to see my doctor next week. There will be another psa. and, whatever test indicators that are available (suggestions are appreciated).

Anyway, I have been going on with my life, enjoying the moments.

Hey Randy, glad you checked in. I still check the board just not posting as much.
I also hit the two year mark in Sept. Life is good and drawing 0's also.

Hey,  I wonder....is anyone I used to talk to on here still from 7 years ago....hoping all are cured and moving on with their lives.  I am back due to a work collegue that's father just diagnosed and I had to give him the connection to one of the biggest helps to me when I was going through my ordeal with the beast....This board......Hilton,Kongo,  Hopeful and Opt, Lewvino, Vascoda gama, and many more I became friends with.....I remember making a post that I would come back 10 years later as that is the date if you still are in the Zero PSA club ...you'd have completely beaton the beast...almost there this is year 7 or eight...getting old I forgot....   Anyway it's been so long I cannot even remember my stats so I'll have to go to my profile page and relearn...LOL.   Just checking in guys...  Randy

Hi Randy,

Welcome back, or is this just to tell us that you are still "kicking". I have missed your comments, though I am glad to know that you do not need this forum as before, and continue in the zeros.

Some guys do not respond anymore which may signify they found cure. Some continue to assists the many and some like me continue looking for help.

Best wishes

You may not remember me, but I remember you. 

I was here starting 6 years ago and I remember your posts from when I 1st started.  I have since been treated w/CK and have been cancer free w/a PSA below 1 for over a year (like Kongo, who hasn't been around for a couple of yers since he was also successfully treated).  In my case, I'm still hanging around trying to "give back" by offering any advice/info that I can to those who care to listen.

Randy,

Glad to hear you are doing so well.  Congratulations

I'm new.  Had Robotic surgery, in Dec 2013 after a diagnosis with a PSA 0f 69 and a Geason for 7. Two years of Lupron and 8 weeks of radiation.  My PSA went to <0.010 after two months and still remains at that figure 2 3/4 years later.  I have been off Lupron for 4 months and will have blood work done in two weeks to check testosterone levels and PSA plus all the other things my doctors check.  So far bone scans and MRI's remain clear. 

I'm so glad you came back and shared your sucess.  It's stories like your's that help us all to have faith and hope for remission. 

Thank You

Peace and God Bless

Will
