Had my follow up CT today and here is my scenerio.
My pathology report: 5.3 cm mass 55% teratoma 40% EU, 5% yolk sac
L/V invasion stage 2a non-seminoma found 2 nodes affected. (1) 1.9 cm the other .4cm
Consult with Dr. Einhorn in the morning to see what direction to attack. With the presence of both teratoma and EC treatment will either be Chemo and see if it knocks out the nodes. If it doesn't then they are teratoma and then RPLND. Option 2 is to go ahead and schedule the RPLND and get them out. I guess I will have to what and see what the experts want to do.
I wait again. It seems that's all doing lately. I did walk all around IU today getting my scans,bloodwork and appointment. Feeling good that I could di hat only three days post I/O.
right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since

My bloodwork was negative pre-op. we did it again today. He said we were going to presume they were negative before he started talking today. I think it was in close proximity to the larger one. Not really sure. He did as that if my markers were elevated then chemo would be the route we would take.
