we got a 3 month reprieve; our visit to the oncologist was encouraging. He explained how cyber radiation works so that the met that appears on the T11 is unchanged or stable.
he explained that if and when it wants to grow, the radiation will kill it.
Scans were otherwise clean and he, as well as the surgeon were pleasantly surprised at the grade 2 cells and good margins.
more scans at the end of February but his gut feeling (i pressed for that) is that this cancer is slow-growing although he told us how unpredictable renal cancer is and some of the weird recurrences he has seen.
at this point, he does not see the need for meds, wanting to save them in the future if needed. It will take me a while to take this in.
