Yes, it’s that time again—time for my next PSA test. I had the blood drawn this morning, and I should be able to get the results online in three days.
My last reading was 0.09 ng/ml and, if you put a trend line over the last four readings, this reading should come out somewhere around 0.105 ng/ml. Let’s see how accurate its predictive powers are.

Know how you feel. Had my blood draw this morning and see the oncologist on Thursday. Whatever we feel like, whatever we look like, we still wait with baited breath for those numbers!

Hi Tim. That, we do. Although, I have to admit that for some (good) reason, this time around I’ve been quite calm about the whole thing. I really do believe that my time in the mountains in October and November really recalibrated me.
Good luck with your results!
Hi Dan, as of 12/8 it will be one year since my RP. My blood work has been <0.05 ng/mL 3 times. I’m lucky, no I continence and ed that is taken care of by a pill.
I found out about my cancer in early September 2016. I found your blog shortly after that and can’t tell you how much it gave me comfort at a time when I felt very alone, even with people who love me. Cancer is a lonely business for us all.
After my RP I found a “support” group online. It got to be very depressing. I’m speaking for me. I had to stop reading and start living. My cancer is in remission and it doesn’t define who I am. I feel so much better focusing on being Sean, not Cancer Sean. Life will do as it pleases and I will make decisions as needed. Until that time I will not let this illness own me.
I like reading your blog. You give me hope that we can all get on with living and not dying.
Thanks for being you. I’m sure you have helped many men. I will be thinking about you and hoping for the best of outcomes for you. God bless and happy holidays.
