Hooray! -- My PSA Is Finally Dropping!

After some troubling ups and downs this past year following CK treatment, my PSA is finally dropping and is currently below what it was over 5 years ago before all of this sh*t started.

Maybe it helped that I didn't have sex for a week before the last test. LOL!!!

It's still not as low as I'd like but at least it's headed in the right direction. Hopefully, it'll drop below 1 (where it belongs) after the next test in March 2012.

Here's my PSA history to date:

10/12/06 -- 2.90
03/21/08 -- 3.40
01/07/10 -- 4.50
01/25/10 -- Biopsy
03/30/10 -- 29.7
04/20/10 -- 8.60
06/22/10 -- 5.90
09/22/10 -- Last of 4 CK treatments; no baseline PSA taken in 09/10
12/03/10 -- 12.30
12/15/10 -- 9.48
03/23/11 -- 3.03
06/14/11 -- 5.07
06/20/11 -- 3.72
09/12/11 -- 3.56
12/23/11 -- 1.81

As you can see, it's been a pretty wild ride for me. So, if you have similar variability in your PSA results, there's reason to hold out hope that things will get better.

Ciao!!
