Getting closer to my 1st blood test since my surgery

I had the robotic surgery back on December 1 and just 4 more weeks till my first psa test since the surgery. Starting to get a little anxious, maybe a little nervous but confident things will be fine. I went into surgery a Gleason 8 and came out a 7 for what it's worth(4+4 to 4+3) better down than up. My Doctor was very pleased with the outcome and said there were no positive margins, all contained to the prostate. Even though I'm very pleased with the way everything went I'm still nervous about this psa test. I look back to my diagnosed date back in September and what a ride it's been! Very blessed to have had such a great Doctor and staff to get me thru it all and only 10 minutes from my house. Many people I talk to we're like me before my diagnoses in that they knew nothing about getting checked early but now that they see I was only 44, I've been able to get a few of my friends off their tail and in to get checked. Looking for a BIG FAT 0 in 4 weeks! Thanks for listening
