1.8 Months After Surgery - PSA Results

More good news! I received the results of my PSA last week and the cancer was untraceable, >0.1%. Its been 1.8 months since my surgery and I am so pumped! I went to my urologist for a follow-up from my December surgery and PSA results last week as well. Obviously I was glad about my PSA, but I am still having a slight problem with incontinence since my last surgery. Its not too bad as I am okay until I start to run or exercise. My doctor is sending me for physical therapy to see if we can get things back to normal. I will post my progress as I go through PT. As far as my male function, things have really improved since the last surgery and am really encouraged with the success. On a personal note I ran in the Valentines Day 5k off-road race at the Silver River State Park a few weeks ago and finished in 3rd place in my age group and brought home a trophy! It was a lot of fun and am currently training for my first 10k off-road running event in late March. I also have committed to train for my first half-marathon (13.1 miles) in October and will use this as my fundraising event so stay tuned for details on how you can help. I am so thankful for all the blessings I have received and all the great people I have met through this life changing event.

God Bless!
