  • Introducing myself.

    I was diagnosed with Stage II nonseminoma in February 2015. I was having dull abdominal pain that was persistent. Tumor was found via ultra sound during an ER visit. I had an orchiectomy and port placement in March. Did 4xEP from March-June 2015. Had my port removed in July. Everything was all good until October 2016 when my lymph nodes started to grow. Dr. Foster did my RPLND at IU 3 weeks ago. I follow up with my oncologist in St. Louis next month.
