ct scan and devasted

Suzy,

Sounds inconclusive at this point. If it is just the ureter and they move fast, then maybe the kidney will be fine. Depending on how much of the ureter is a problem, it would seem like they could just remove the cancerous part (if it is cancer there) with the result being a shorter ureter.

In any case, I HOPE that further testing results in a conclusive "no problem".

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

my last cyto was an all clear on my bladder that was only 3 weeks ago i already had nephrourectomy so uro was scanning my remaining kidney and ureter there seems to b some sort of tightning or nipping of ureter showing on ivp that is why i had ct scan i hav no symptoms and i am fit and well which i also was at my DX in the begining

Suzy,

I know this news has hit you hard. When will he be getting back to you? What other tests will he be performing since he is not 100% sure just from looking at the CT scan? Sending you a big ((Hug)) and hoping the CT is wrong.
