  • Hola mi amigos!

    Hello,
    My name is Scott Gross. I am a English/Philosophy major at Abilene Christian University. I was diagnosed with stage 2 last september and finished chemo in early Jan "06. I am in a wait and see situation, my oncologist is saying that I will need the RPLND at some point at any time in the near future. I was treated at Emory Winship Cancer Intsitute in Atlanta, GA. I am now back in Abilene, TX trying to adjust to normal life. It is very hard since i am having memory problems, and feel like i am still anemic even though i am not. I wish that I would have known about this site when all of this started, it would have helped so much. I look foward to talking and chatting with all of you in the future. This site has already helped me with a couple of things. I want to also express how wonderful the people are on this site. I do not feel alone. Thank You!
    sincerly,
    scott

    Welcome, Scott, I'm glad you found us!

    It sounds as though your pathology report indicated teratoma?

      Hi Scott, the urologist who treated my husband 25 years ago and saved his life is a Emory now. His name is Peter Nieh. Is he associated with your urologists? When my son was diagnosed he was the first person I called. We consulted with him on his treatment. Also, you might find some threads by April, whose husband, Wesley, was treated there. What was your pathology? Dianne

        Welcome aboard. Most doctors like to do the RPLND 6-8 weeks after the end of chemo.
