Hi:

1.  How long has it been since your kidney surgery?

     My husband's kidney removal was on Feb. 14, 2018.  So, around 2 months!

2.  What was your staging?  

     His was/is PT3.   (I never know if I say 'was' or 'is' when it comes to the staging)

     Tumor size: 5 cm.

3.  After you had your kidney removal surgery, did you go on chemotherapy or any other treatments?

      No

4.  Have you had any recurrances of cancer?  If so, what happened and how long after your kidney surgery?

     He hasn't been checked yet.

    Husband's stats...

    1.  Surgery:  November 2004

    2.  Stage:  pT3b clear cell

    3.  Treatment:  None until January 2013.  Began Sutent and have had a good response.  (Mostly stable!)

    4.  Recurrances:  Large met to pancreas discovered in December 2012.  "Suspicious" lung nodes were never  biopsied, but presumed to be more mets as they responded to treatment.  Since then, enlarged messenteric lymph nodes which are also likely malignant. They have either remained stable or gotten smaller.  Scans tomorrow!!

    2. Stage 1 but grade 2-3

    3. No treatment
