final biopsy results

Jo called the surgeon today to get the last word on the biopsy. The biopsy had been sent to the Childrens hospital and Sydney for cross examination. We were told that the tumor is rarer than initially thought. 10 cases in the last 40 years. He will still need the kidney removed and would now also require chemotherapy. Further tests also need to be performed tomorrow, to rule out any involvement other than the kidney. (CT, bone scans and bone marrow testing).
