Hi Kiva, I agree that @daledales' experience and post is really helpful. How are you feeling about the watch and wait approach? Have you considered getting a second opinion to feel confident in the approach?

I’m unsure. The surgery is so life altering.
One could have the surgery and a cancer cell could still pop up somewhere.
The fear is waiting and if cancer spreads, there may not be a surgery choice.
The T4b is said to be scar tissue.
Yes, a second opinion would be helpful perhaps. But the surgeon and team have been great and there’s a strong trust for the surgeon.
Thank you for the response!
