NED on track. 1 test down. 1 further test and 1 operation to go
Surgeon visit went very well yesterday, All the tests for metastisis (secondary spread) were negative, plus impact and healing from previous surgery and RT is going great. The before and after MRI images are amazing and reassuring. Went through surgery planning a little not much new info, confirmed that they will need to use a supporting rod and fuse the lower spine (approx 15 cm). This will have some long term mobility issues but I am not concerned about it and will come to terms with it fine. I like Doctor B, he is on our side and working hard for a happy outcome. My surgeon did also say that the stiffning of the spine will result in "my golf handicap going out", so to my golfing friends, bring on the strokes!
