I had a scan 2-3 weeks ago. Just wanted to pop in and say it was NED. I'm feeling pretty good about it. This is the first scan I've had in 4 years that I experienced very little scanxiety.

When I had my followup, the oncologist didn't even see me this time. He had the PA see me. I'm not sure if I like that, but I decided to take it as a sign he thinks I'm doing well instead of getting negative about it.

I've been working on my weight. In two months I've lost 22.5 pounds. I'm about half way to my goal. I'm feeling excited about this.

All in all, good news to report.

Glad to see you all and catch up on how everyone is doing. Welcome to the newcomers and sorry you have to be here. However, this is a good place to be if you have RCC.

on both the NED status and weight loss.  No doubt you'll make that 45 lb goal.

I've never had success before. I'm in a medically supervised weight loss program at the local university. They are using a program by a company called HMR. The first phase of the program is a very low calorie diet. It includes weekly classes, close tracking and contact with a registered dietician, weekly visits with the doctor. For me, this is the first thing I've tried that has really worked. They have 3 programs. Two are weight loss programs and another is a maintenance program. They push for more exercise, sleep, sticking to the food plan, drinking enough water. The classes are great.

After losing the weight, I had the best kidney function numbers I've ever had in 4 years. Not sure if there's a connection or not.

I was pretty miserable so I'm glad something is working.

I also attend OA meetings about once every two weeks. It's a very supportive program.

The program sounds amazing, Todd.  It also sounds as though there's a lot of work on your part, too. Good for you!
