  • RPLND at Johns Hopkins

    So had a right testicle orchiectomy with YK, teratoma, seminoma, and EC.**So NSGCT.**AFP tumor markers went as followed, 855.5, 19.2, 4.5, 4.7, 5.0, 5.4.**So they are creeping back up.**CT scan showed an interval enlargement of 2 nodes.**My oncologist and urologist want me to have RPLND.**

    Sent my records and images to IU and Dr Einhorn and Dr Cary both weighed in echoing the same thing.**Dr Cary said nodes are 1.8cm.**Unfortunately, Tricare reserve select does not cover them and seems to be a up hill battle.**

    Reached out to Dr. Pierorazio at Johns Hopkins, he is in Tricares network so he would be covered.**My research has shown he is an expert in the field and does high volume RA-RPLNDs.**Has anyone had their RPLND with him?**IF so can you expand on your experience post RPLND?**
