Good News!

Postby Deep » Wed Apr 24, 2019 4:10 pm

The pathology came back for my cancer following surgery and not only were there clear margins, but none of my lymph nodes had cancer in them. So, I am awaiting the appointments with encology and my surgeon, but was told that my cancer is now a T2 or stage 2.
