  6. Can anyone help with this case: 62 year old female diagnosed with TCC of
  7. kidney and ureter as well as lymph involvement. Will be starting
  8. gemcitabine once a week 3 weeks on and 1 week off and cisplatin 1 time
  9. per cycle. Also on dexamethasone and various drugs for chemo side
  10. effects. Kidney was removed 3 weeks ago. She was born with some sort of
  11. kidney/ureter obstruction and diverticula, the obstruction was corrected
  12. at age 7 but the diverticula was left.
  13. Her eGFR is >60 and her glucose is 103mg/dL. WBC, platelets and
  14. lymphocytes are elevated. RBC, Hgb, Hct are low.
  15.  
  16. Would I do anything different in this case than a RCC case? I would
  17. appreciate any insights.

  27. Sherry, can you please explain abbreviations before using them? I do not know what TCC or TCC mean.
