Almost a year since the nephrectomy of my left kidney due to multifocal chromophobe renal cell carcinoma. I am scheduled for my CAT scan at St. Joseph's in Atlanta after my 2nd cryoablation procedure next Friday. Have had a total of three small masses frozen so far in my right kidney. Really need everyone's support and prayers that I will have a NED this go round.

Also hoping for the best for you Doug. Even if you're not fully clear at this scan, that NED can't be far away and you can do what Fox has told Jeff we're aiming for - everyone qualifying to put those letters after their name! (How I envy that Fox his originality of thinking!)

Was given an all clear today at St. Joseph's. however there is a small spot on my kidney that Dr. Krebs says it is more than likely nothing. It was on the last scan and hasn't increased in size over the last 3 months. Ablations are shrinking in size. Will have another scan in December. But for now will call it NED . Thanks everyone for your kind wishes and prayers!
