Just met with the surgeon and he reported a challenging, but successful surgery! Everything went well:
-Many lymph nodes removed
-Big abdominal tumor removed with preliminary cancer-negative pathology
-Left testicle removed with no need for a separate incision
-Kidney spared removal
-Nerves spared
-no need for blood transfusion

Jay is not yet awake, but I’ll see him soon and will keep you updated.
