  • Some good news

    My other half had his first appointment with the Oncologist yesterday, and we had some good news, his seminoma was completely removed with the op, no vacular invasion and the CT scan was alll clear.
    The doctor advsied against surveillance as his blood markers were normal and they think it'll be hard for them to tell if it has come back. He is going to have one low dose of Carboplatin then monitoting for 7 years.

    Boyfriend left testicle removed 24/08/06, diagnosed 24/08/06. Stage 1 Seminoma, single dose Carboplatin 12/10/06.
