Pathology report

we just got the results and tumor was 10 cm, no cancer in adrenal or surrounding fat and the Furhman grade is 2.

the surgeon had guessed it to be a grade 3 prior to surgery because it was in spine so all in all, the pathology was a decent one.

didn't realize how stressed I had been until I spoke to surgeon since I was not going to his follow-up this Thursday because of work.

after the surgeon, we meet with the oncologist to hear recommendations for further treatment.

I read your husband's bio and things seem to be looking up over the past 10 weeks. Keep up the good work so that we can hear the  words "looks like a full recovery"

those ten weeks have felt like years and he has been through a lot. Getting this pathology report was much better news than we dared to expect.

the initial doctoring was so inexperienced and this disease so horrible that I would urge anyone diagnosed with it to get experienced treatment.
