Month 42 – PSA Results

It’s funny.

I didn’t even think much of getting my blood drawn for my six month PSA test on 30 April.  Just went in, got stuck, and went on my merry way.  No biggie.

Or so I thought.

Afterwards, I was checking my online health record twice a day looking for the results.  Hurry up and wait.  I guess modern technology has all made us wanting instant gratification, and when we don’t get it, we get upset.

Once a cancer patient, there’s always that little cloud of “What if?” hanging over your head.  I don’t get nearly as worked up about waiting for the results as I did for my first post-surgery six month check, but it’s still there.

So the results?  Still undetectable!  🙂

I actually have my appointment with my urologist on Tuesday to officially go over the results.  I’m sure we’ll talk about incontinence and sexual function, too.  [Edit 5/16/14: The urologist doesn’t want to see me for 8 months instead of the usual 6 months.  Next PSA: January 2015.]

Oh.  And Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere–living and departed.
