Early Biopsy Results
The surgeon (Dr Kent) called a few hours ago in the middle of a nap; I’d had a Percocet, I was tired, and the loud fan was on. He was politely asked by a 2007 recording of myself to leave a message.
The message was that the initial pathology from the lymph node biopsy confirmed the bone marrow biopsy of lymphoma. They’ve sent my node (or slides from the node, or at least some part of it) to UW to have some additional stains and markers done on it for subtyping.
He invited me to schedule a phone visit for after the results are in, so I’ll do that in addition to following up with my oncologist. I really like that Dr Kent is still interested in my case, even though all the cutting is done. Additional interested experts = a happy Tom.
