I mentioned this last week on Twitter, which then automatically goes to Facebook, but I didn’t put it up here on the blog (which, come to think of it, also now goes automatically to Facebook). So for those of you who don’t read our other feeds, I wanted to share the results of an email from my urologist I got last week. It was subsequent to the followup CT scan that was done three months after my kidney cancer surgery.
I am happy to report that your CT scan showed no evidence of residual and/or recurrent kidney cancer. I recommend that you have a chest x-ray and blood tests every 6 months. I have ordered these tests for you. I will also order your next CT scan in 2 years.
That’s a good thing to read first thing in the morning. What a relief!
I’ll see my urologist in January for the first in-person followup visit, but I can now think of myself as a cancer survivor. Which certainly beats the alternative.
