As most of you know I'm 6 weeks post surgery. I had a full Neph that was 5.0cm. I received a great path report. Stage 1, grade 1 w clear margins.
Additionally, I've come to find out that my nodes were not taken out & biopsied (sp). PNX was the code. this frightens the heck out of me.
I'm dealing with post-surgical stress anyway now that my new reality & I have to live with the ( every 3 months mystery ) waiting, which I know most you also live with. So to add this to the mix isn't as comforting as what I felt a few weeks ago thinking I was more than likely done with this dreaded disease & had won the lottery.
If anyone knows of a Dr that may have some expertise in either of these areas I could speak with it would be greatly appreciated. My Dr doesn't have the best bed side manner, although he is a good surgeon that seems to have did a good job with my Neph.
