  • Hello from Australia!a

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to say hi. Looks like an amazing and supportive community so glad to be here!!

    My name is Joe, started to feel weird for a while, got to the doctor, everything happened very quickly including left orchiectomy.

    After 3 months came back in my lymph nodes, starting BEP on Monday.

    I'm positive, but it's still scary.

    Loving hasn't been easy at times, but last couple of years my love has been amazing with meeting my now wife and having our kid.

    So I'm going to fight on!!!

    Welcome to the forum no one wants to join, Joe.If I'm understanding correctly, things looked good after the I/O & turned south 3 months later? What did your path report have to say? No need to be scared, you will feel uncomfortable for a while, and then it will be over & you will be cured. Have no doubt about that.

      Thank you, Dave, you're spot on - it did turn south 3 months later... The oncologist is very positive which is a good thing. Thank you for your kind words!!
