                    Great news !! My god, it's funny, lots of us have never even met, yet all of us have in some way been affected by this disease, and when not so good news is posted we weep and feel the pain of others, yet when GREAT NEWS like this happens, we are so excited and a smile is put on our faces for the rest of the day because it means one more survivor. I'm so happy for the both of you.

                        I would expect that an RPLND would be the next step...is that what they are suggesting?

                        I am not a doctor of course...but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
