Hi Mike - I am new to the site (today) and excited to read your post as one of my first! Since I am not familiar with the navigation of the site, is there a way to find out the chemo you used? My brother is 51. His RC was in April 2012, T2aN0. We were told he was cencer free until learning in August, 2012 -- he wasn't (lungs and pelvic nodes). After 4 cycles of Cisplatin/Gemcitabine, some of the turmors cleared up but new ones appeared in his liver. Did you need to address a second line of defence and if so, what did you do? I hope this is not too personal... Thanks in advance.

Normally, as you did with your first posting of this, it would go into the Invasive category. However, this is such good news, it will be an inspiration to Newly Diagnosed people, so it BELONGS HERE!! You have shown that it is possible to "come out the other side" and live a very satisfying life!

Congratulations to you, and thank you for posting!!
