  • RPLND next week

    Hi everyone, been awhile since i wrote. My son Allen is having a RPLND next week. I really dont understand all of this. I am leaving for Ca this week end to be with him and we have a appointment with his doctor on Monday so I can find out everything and ask some questions. I do know that the bleo really messed up his lungs, and I want to know how this will effect his surgery. Will let everyone know how it all turns out when I get back home, at least ten days from now.

    Best wishes to you and Allen. You'll find lots of past postings if you search for the term "RPLND."

        Hi Mary Ellen!

        I'm glad to hear that Chris got through it alright!

        I know that they'll want him to start walking right away so you might want to make sure that he has something between his tummy and his pant line. I didn't think of it nor did anyone tell me and now my surgery scar is very wide there becasue of it tearing open more and ore when I walked up and down the stairs.

        It doesnt bother me at all, in fact I think of it as as something I earned but for others it may be different.
