Hi everyone,

Thank you for the good lucks and wishes...

The appointment went very well. I like the new uro - took time to review my history and paper reports prior to my appt, was very thourough in discussion and physical exam, and explained things to me quite well. He read my films from Oct, Dec and Jan while I was there, too.
He does believe the lesion is metastic unfortunately. Tuesday will be numerous MRIs and CT chest. They are doing labs and cytologies now. And will have a scope of the neo, ureters and renal pelvis next week too. The did an ultra sound thingy to check for residual urine - I had 120 ccs retention. Learning to selfcath is immenent to help save my kidneys. On the 6th we meet again to understand all the findings and discuss clinical trial options. Then on the 10th I meet a oncologist and radiation dr to make a plan to beat this thing. He did say that chemo with radiation is likely and that I may lose the neo for a bag due to the location of the mets. I can live with that to win.
Thank you for all the support and prayers, I beleive that is as important as good doctoring. Praying for you too, God Bless, Holly
PS I am glad I made this choice now
