My dad had his right kidney and ureter tube removed last week. Unfortunately, on his pathology report, it said that nine out of ten lymph nodes removed tested positive for cancer. His ct scan didnt show cancer in other parts of his body. We have yet met with an oncologist. We are from Alaska, and are presently in Seattle for treatment. His report said T3. The main surgeon was out of town, and the fellowship doctor was very grim. He told us that there was nothing more they could do for my father, this cancer is aggressive,and it does not respond well to chemo. I am hoping someone can offer us some better advise, recommend a good oncologist in the Northwest area, as well as be honest with me, as to a timeline that we can expect for my father. He is really depressed, and minus a kidney, a jp drainage on his side, and now this news. Any help, words of encouragement, and advise would be greatly appreciated.
