Done for a Year!

Just got back from Stanford, where I was treated for my RCC.  All's well.  But, of course, after getting the chest x-ray results and the CT results, we knew that.  I guess I have to be a lot better since I've made the following progression in terms of who sees me:

At six months, the surgeon handled the appointment.

At one year, a nurse practitioner handled the appointment.

This time, at two years, a physician's assistant handled the appointment.

I guess I'll be getting a student nurse at the three year mark.

I get two more years of CT scans, then they want to convert me over to ultrasound, mainly, I think, because insurance won't cover the CT after four years unless there's a medical need.

But I love Stanford.  Very thorough and very kind people.

I was born at Stanford Hospital. I grew up in milpitas if you know where that is. Anyway, cheers to many more years of NED! Always great news to hear

Take care

They will be a lot nicer.  But i’ve Had abdominal issues in th3 past and both my dad and paternal grandfather had aortas issues, so I don’t mind the CT that much since it can spot odd things in the neighborhood.
