    Cheers guys, certainly was nice to be back at home for Christmas day - Hope youve all had a good day, I certainly did!

    No news yet on what they pulled out. The normal wait would have been about 2 weeks, but with the christmas break theyve not got me booked for an appointment until the 18th Jan. They will phone me if they get anything back sooner, but wouldnt make any promises.

    On the plus side, all the other nodes they removed looked clear on a quick visual scan, and with my blood markers still normall they reckon it will be mature teratoma. only 3 weeks to wait

    Left I/O March 05, nonseminoma;
    Relapse July 05, single lymph node 3cm;
    2 x BEP Aug / Sept 05, node grown to 4.7cm;
    2 x VeIP Sept / Oct, node grown to 6.7cm, markers normalised;
    RPLND Dec 05, no active cancer;
    back on surveillance
