  • Expecting A Baby :)

    I wanted to share good news! I just had my 6 month ct scan and blood work check up and everything was clear! My doctor was also very surprised when we showed up and my wife was 3 months pregnant! I had a full bilateral RPLND in March, and was lucky my Dr was able to spare the nerve. In July at my 3 month check up he told me in can take as long as 2 years to conceive because of all the trauma. We actually found out we were pregnant 2 weeks after my 3 month check up. Our baby is due in April, and we find out the gender on November 21st!

    Congrats, Jake!! I'm super happy for you and your wife!

    It's a whole different level of emotions going to your oncology appointments with a pregnant wife. I feel ya. My wife gave birth just after my 5 month scan.
    11/16/16 Went to primary care complaining of testicular pain. Wrongly diagnosed with epididymitis. Told not to worry, it'll go away on its own.
    12/8/16 Diagnosed with TC in left testicle.
    12/9/16 Left I/O.
    1/5/17 Tumor Markers officially back to normal -- Stage 1A with 70% EC.
    1/26/17 Robotic RPLND using left MSKCC template as primary treatment.
    2/2/17 Pathology results: pN0. No current evidence of cancer. They say I still have a 10% relapse chance.
