Consistent followers of this journal realize my PSA has steadily increased over a two year period. For discussion purposes the results of the past year appear below:
April 2012 2.0
July 2012 3.1
October 2012 3.96
January 2013 4.7
March 2013 5.9
April 2013 7.2
The last entry in the above table represents a treatment benchmark inasmuch as the blood draw occurred in the same week I implemented Dr. Myers' protocol. After following the plan for thirty days or so on May 27th my PSA came in at 5.25. This represents a change in direction and a reduction of nearly two points. Clearly this is a welcome development. Amen and hallelujah!
Oh I know only too well, it is much too early to celebrate. One PSA does not represent a trend. And even if a trend develops there are no guarantees. Even so from a medical standpoint I have had precious little to rejoice about over the past two years. So please understand my inclination to savor the moment.
