First meeting with Dr Voss

We had our first appointment today with our new oncologist, Dr Voss.

He spent a good amount of time with us explaining where we go from here (4 week post radical nephrectomy) and answering our questions. He explained the stages of cancer and what made my husband's tumor stage 4.

John's tumor was 14cm and went into his adrenal gland which made it stage 4. He also explained that the whole tumor was removed along with the kidney and adrenal gland. We will follow up with a CAT scan in 3 to 6 months. 

Thank you for your support,

Theresa

    From the comments on here about Dr Voss, he sounds like a wonderful, caring doctor with a good plan!

    Glad your meeting went well. You sound relieved or reassured, right?

    Your journey continues, and we'll be here along side you both.

    Hugs, Jan

    Hi Jojo,

    Hi Jojo,

    No other meds at this point. The feeling is that everything was removed with the surgery. By the grace of God I hope it was.

    Thank you for your support,
