  • Pure Seminoma IIB Post-Chemo scans

    Hey everyone. Tomorrow I have my post chemo scans for my TC. My strength has been coming back slowly over the past few weeks and I have a bit of peach fuzz on my head now. No back pain that I can tell - though last week I did fall down the stairs and get a bit of a bruise. Luckily it was on the other side of where the tumor was! Anyways, I’ll update when I get the results but wanted to check in with everyone and say that tomorrow is the day.
    2/14/18 Right I/O - Pure Seminoma 1B
    3/6/19 - Scans showed one 4.7x4.3x3.1 para-aortic lymph node - Pure Seminoma IIB
    3/18/19 - 5/25/19- 4xEP
    6/18/19 - Post Chemo Scan: Remaining area now .8x.9cm everything looks good, slightly elevated LDH (248) probably having to do with working out too hard. Surveillance!

      Hey Dave - thanks so much!

      Great news: the tumor responded terrifically to the treatment and now there is a .8x.9 cm speck of what is most likely necrotic tissue! On surveillance now for the next 5 years with my next X-ray and bloodwork in 2 months

        That’s great news! My husband needs one more bleo to finish round 3 and then he will have a ct scan also. His is pure seminoma stage 2b like yours. He was stage 1a last year and relapsed just like you in the same area a year later. Hopefully his scan comes back clear.
