    Hi everyone.
    My name is Ron
    46 years old
    Muncie, Indiana
    IU Hospital Indianapolis

    Right Orchiectomy May 06
    RPLND June 06

    I have been on surveillance with monthly visits. Turmor markers have never indicated anything before, during, or after. Just had latest chest x-ray and blood test. Dr's office called today something on x-ray, going in tomorrow for chest ct scan. Hopeful that the nightmare is not returning. I don't have the orginal lab report with me to post. Just needed to vent. Thanks for listening!

    Good luck, Ron. Hope the scare turns out to be nothing.
