Renal Pelvis TCC T2N0M0 Grade 3

I am a 43 year old male recently diagnosed with Transitional Cell Carcinmoa of the Renal Pelvis and Carcinoma in-situ of the upper ureter. I have just had the results of my first cystoscopy three months after my radical nephrectomy – they were clear. The surgery was on the 21st of April. Over the last five weeks, I have had adjuvant chemotherapy (carbo) and radiation treatment of the kidney bed to prevent seeding. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar treatment and what your experiences of it are. In three months time, I will have to have a sonar of my kidney bed. I see that the 5 year prognosis for this stage is 43%, but my oncologist reckoned that for me, we should work on 70%.
