It was like that in the hospital too. The phlebotomist was as good as it gets but I only had him once. Most of the other draws weren't as good as the people doing them didn't do it as their only job.
I read the surgeon's visit note and she copied the old path report and it said 0/15 nodes so maybe I was a 3A. The old imaging had three suspicious nodes so I assumed 3B. Nobody actually gave me an official Staging.
Today's the first day that I feel that I actually don't have cancer. Objectively, it was last October but all of the treatment, etc. didn't have me mentally of the mind that the cancer was gone. The meeting with the oncologist for surveillance turned the corner for me.

Even though the tumor was basically gone after surgery and no nodes affected I don't think I was restaged. Oh well, guess it doesn't matter now. I was just thinking maybe you were stage 2.
