Two posts in one day….WOW! This one is all good stuff.
I had my post-op appointment today with Dr. Lee. He confirmed the pathology report and went over it in detail with me. I went armed with a list of questions for him:
What is the likelihood of recurrence? “Less than 10%.”
What is my prognosis? “You have a great prognosis.”
How big was the tumor? “Golf ball size.”
Can I tell people I “had” kidney cancer? “You can tell them you are “cured”. You had kidney cancer and came to Tulane and now it’s gone.”
Clarify the percentage of kidney saved. “75%”.
What kind of monitoring and how often? “CT scans and a Chest X-ray annually”.
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this was all music to my ears!
Thank you dear Lord for taking care of me and thank you Dr. Lee for your skill!
