9 Month PSA Results

I am so relieved today because I just found out my 9 month (since my surgery) PSA came back undetectable, less than zero! I don't know why I was so nervous about the results from this time, its still an emotional thing. I guess I'm still human after all. Also, my first triathlon is in 2.5 weeks and I exceeded my fundraising goal of $2500. Thanks for all the incredible support! Its so nice to be able to blog about good news! For all the folks following my blog and the first timers I want you to NEVER GIVE IN! Embrace your family and friends, appreciate the little things in life, and do something you never thought you would do in your lifetime. Don't focus on the negative, when you peel back all the layers in life, we truly have a lot to be thankful for. We may not understand why things happen sometimes but we have to make the best with what we have been dealt. I trust God has a plan and even though I don't understand why some things happen, I do know that he cares for us. John 3:16. God Bless you ALL! Life is Good!

Hey Darren, been a while since we last spoke. By the looks for things you're doing really well :)

I've just had my operation in the past 2 weeks and have followed your example and created a blog. It can be found at http://www.robdav.co.uk/blog.

I'm not even confirmed with prostate cancer yet but I just got my PSA results back (5.5) and am heading to the urologist for a consultation prior to biopsy. I'm assuming the worst and to be honest, I'm terrified. I'm 48. Your blog is great. I tip my hat to you for your postings and making it just a little easier for everyone who even might have to confront and go through what you have over the past year. I'm planning to create a blog as well. Good luck to you and your family and thanks again for sharing your experience with everyone.
