    You relapsed how long after BEPx3?
    I finished BEPx3 on November 21-2018, first Abdominal CT-Scan after chemo on December 19-2018 showed the node was 15mm before I started chemo it was about 39mm. Then on January 14-2019 another abdominal Scan no contrast showed it was 12mm. Then April 30-2019 Abdominal MRI showed the mass was 43mm and there was another mass 27mm. So I'm not sure about it, but it seems I relapsed about two months after or three months.
    Who knows..

    • It's highly unusual to have active TC post chemo, but it happens, I'd email Doc E & get his thoughts.

        Hello Dave, I already emailed Dr.Einhorn and he is recommending salvage chemo. I actually was scheduled to have RPLND surgery done today, but it wasnt done because Dr.Einhorn told me about second-line salvage chemo instead. I sent my abdomen MRI to Dr.Einhorn and he said he saw it and that RPLND would be very difficult and I could lose my right kidney. I hope this is correct
        I will email him again

        • I will start TIP salvage chemo. I relapsed a few months after I completed BEPx3 on november 2018. Docs think that with elevated tumor markers and mass 43mm and 27mm I should get salvage chemo instead of RPLND..
          did anybody here recieve TIP salvage chemo, how is it..?
          is TIP similar to BEP about side effects...?
          My oncologist insisted on TIP. He already gave me the papers with the formula....


          Paclitaxel 350 Mg Day 1 only

          Ifosfamide 3000 Mg Days 2-5

          Cisplatin 40Mg Days 2-5

          is the dose fine..?
