I just got back from my 6 month, post surgery follow up.
It started, actually, about a month ago when I went in for a chest X-Ray and CT scan so they could see how everything was doing in my 'kidney void' as well as looking for anything else that could be a concern.
Today, they did the standard pee-in-a-cup and check yer blood pressure thing and then Dr. Weissman came in and uttered the three words I was hoping for:
"Everything looks fine."
He didn't see any problems and everything looked exactly like he expected it to look after that surgery. Things are moving around but everything looks good.
Next step: another chest X-Ray and a liver function test in 6 more months.
I guess this is the official transition from cancer patient to cancer survivor. Woo hoo!
Here's hoping I keep that latter title for a long, long time.
