  • 1 year - all clear

    Great news from the Oncologist today - just hit my 1 year all clear mark.

    Thank you all for the support this board provides. It has definitely increased my knowledge on this disease and has made my interactions with my oncologist much more productive.

      I got to do one of my favorite things today - update my signature. Still pending a meeting with my oncologist, but my blood test and CT scans were clear. I'm a little out of sync, so I guess this is kind of my "18-months all clear".

        18 months! Awesome!
        Painless lump 5/18/2017
        Orchidectomy June 2017 (4.5cm, rete testis involvement)
        Chemo Summer 2017 (2x7AUC carboplatin)
        No evidence of relapse since, but plenty of anxiety about it.

        I'm also an epidemiologist, and a professor at a medical school (with NO training in oncology), oh, and gay, too.
