Well today was the day to make the trek to Hamilton to see my superstar surgeon for the pathology results on Arnold
Size: 13 cm X 10 cm X 9 cm.....apparently Arnold was on steroids! lol
T3a (or T2 - see explanation further down in my message - nothing is every straight forward in this life of mine!)
Renal Cell Carcnoma - clear cell.
They got it all and I am now cancer free.
I go for bloodwork after Christmas - to make sure my other kidney is functioning properly
Then in 3 months go for a CT scan.
I am very happy....but....initially today he said Stage 2. Then he gave me 2 documents to give his assistant and it said T3a on everything. I was so flustered that I left my coat and umbrella in the examining room!! By the time I got home I thought I should call to clarify, but of course they are now closed til Monday - I willl call again.
Regardless....T2 or T3a....Arnold is gone and my body is loving the peace and quiet!
I think it is time to celebrate!
