Advice on University of Chicago for LAP-RPLND
It has been 3 years since my chemo, but now my CT shows two tumors (they have been there since the beginning) starting to grow again. I am looking at all my options. My oncologist suggested open RPLND, but I was wonder since the two tumors are easy to spot on CT and my markers show no activity if L-RPLND would be a good option.
Does anyone have any advice on the subject? How about someone to contact at U of C.
