I had DaVinci surgery on March 14, 2011, at City of Hope here in SoCal and finally got my first post-op PSA results a couple of weeks ago. "Undetectable!" My pathology report indicated stage T3A with extracapsular extension and a "single" positive lymph node. No positive margins, no seminal vesicle or lymph-vascular involvement and Gleason 3 + 4 = 7. My doc recommends no further treatment at this time. Will continue to watch my PSA closely and hope for many more similar results in the future.

    Congratulations
    Getting an undetectable PSA at any time is a great feeling. Please celebrate and enjoy it. My first PSA after DaVinci was undetectable as well and I recall how thrilled I was to get that score - especially since it was 20.4 before surgery. I'll add my best wishes for many more years of undetectable scores.

    It is nice to hear about “undetectable” PSA after treatment. Your "single" positive lymph node involvement may be of concern, however, only time will tell if the surgery missed any thing.
    I wonder about your clinical stage and PSA pre surgery.
    Wishing you a quick recovery and lasting undetectable PSAs.

    PSA Still Undetectable!!
    Hello All:

    Back again, and in three days will be celebrating my 1 year DaVinci RP anniversary. The best news is that all post-op PSA test results since have been "undetectable".

    Thanks to everyone here for all the best wishes.
