    Your private message box was full so I just posted my reply here.

    Thanks for the response. I have now gone through the Right Orc. surgery, CT scan, and chest ex-ray. All looked good, no obvious signs of spread. But as you know the pathology report and blood work tell the true tale. Doctor and radiologist suspect seminoma, I personally am still hoping for benign but have read enough to know that I have a really good chance of survival know matter what. I am much more positive than I was last week.

    I read your story and can really relate to the shock of hearing the 3 words that nobody wants to hear. Since my diagnosis I have heard horror stories about those with different types of cancer which are not so curable. I can't even begin to imagine what they must be going through. I still thank God for being so lucky.

    Thank you for your reply and your support. I will get through this and so will you. I don't even know you but I feel like I do.

    Thanks again

    Live Strong

    Sorry about the full In Box. I've taken care of that problem now!

    I keep thinking I need to write a Part 2 for my story, summarizing my RPLND and recovery.
    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
