GreenLight Prostate Procedure Patient Report - 4 Months Since Surgery

Time flies, especially when you aren't standing in front of a urinal!

Everything is fine, I'm glad I had the procedure, and glad the surgeon had the opportunity to learn from his mistakes on the patients before me.

GreenLight Prostate Procedure Patient Report - First PSA Test Since Procedure

As a part of my annual physical exam I had a PSA test today...the first since November of last year (before the Greenlight procedure). At that time the PSA was 2.40 (doubled to an effective 4.80 because I was / am taking Avodart).

Today's number is a remarkable 0.9 (doubled to 1.8). Hooray!

My urologist said that they don't do any PSA tests until 7 months after the PVP, because until then the results don't mean anything.
