I just had robotic surgery for a T1A N0M0 clear cell last week and they tell me I'm cured. I just can't seem to wrap my head around that all my life I cancer was the one thing I feared most. Now I have it. Well my surgeon says I had it but no more. I am 65 years old and would like to think I could get another 10 or 15 years out of this body. I have always been pretty healthy (no BP or other chronic problems) so the thought of a recurrence scares the hell out of me. I have seen "stats" until my eyes crossed and don't know which ones to believe. I've been to "lifeMath.net" and every other web site I could find to get some encouragement and still come up with an empty feeling My surgeon is cocky and pretty black and white. He says he has done 100+ robotic surgeries and has a "0" recurrence rate. For a T1a. Is this guy full of crap or am I really cured? Anyone have any insight?
