  • Seeing an oncologist for the first time tommorrow

    Hi. My husband was diagnosed with TC just over two weeks ago. He had an i/o on Valentines Day, and our first appointment with the oncologist is that point we will learn was what found in the path report. We have both been lurking on the site for a few days now, and really appreciate all the postings. As we go through this it is nice to know that we are not alone.

    I'm glad you found us. Welcome. Do you have the results of any bloodwork, x-rays or scans yet? If you wouldn't mind as they become available post them. We may be able to help you avoid some missteps. I know it's a long wait for the results, how are you guys holding up?
    Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

    Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.
