Surgery in the AM

Hey guys, I've got surgery in the morning. We met with Dr. Beck today and he really seems like he knows what he's doing. The plan is to go in there and take out every lymph node in my abdominal area. Hopefully that not only gets the cancer, but also takes out any areas where future problems could come up. Dr. Beck suspects that the surgery may take longer than normal because of scar tissue from my previous RPLND. The scar tissue could make it harder to get my insides out so that he can get behind them.

I'll be out of it for most of the day tomorrow. Karen and I will be on a plane home within a week and a half. Love and miss everyone,
