  • Post RPLND diet: MSKCC vs. IU

    Hi yall,
    I had a RPLND at MSKCC and they are saying I can't have nuts, corn, or popcorn for a year. For those that have had a RPLND at IU, do they give you the same advice?

    Dx March 21 2016
    Right Orchiectomy march 25 2016
    60% embryonal 35% yolk sac 5% seminoma
    positive node on CT 1.4X1.3cm stage 2a markers rising, HCG 2300 AFP 25
    Started 4xEP april 2016
    Finished chemo July 2016, markers normal, complete radiographic remission
    RPLND MSKCC Aug 2016, removed something like 60 nodes all negative but one with teratoma

    My son was not told anything like that. His only advice was to eat smaller, more frequent meals post-op for a few weeks til his system got back on track. He ate whatever he wanted with no issues.
    9/6/13 Left I/O. 18 year old son diagnosed 9/13/13 Stage 2C. Path report: embryonal and yolk sac with spermatic cord involvement and lymphatic invasion BEP x 3 finished 11/25/13. PC-RPLND with Dr. Foster at IU on 1/21/14. Found only dead cancer! Surveillance as of 1/23/14. All clear as of 5/2017.
