Well its been a long 2 months. I was diagnosed with kidney cancer at the beginning of August. I have a herniated disk in my back that has bothered me for the last year. I went in for a ct scan and thats when they found the tumor on my left kidney. Im only 39 years old. I went in for surgery Aug 26 and had a partiial robotic kidney neprhectomy. My surgeon said I was lucky because they caught it early, and after they biopsied the tumor in the operating room, it came back as stage one cancer. The surgeon also explained since it was non evasive, they were able to remove it all and theres a good chance it wont come back, but still scared and hope that it doesnt. Both my doctors agree that having that ct scan probably saved my life. Im still hurting pretty bad from the surgery, but getting better each week. Very scary indeed especially when I have a wife and 3 year old daughter that depend on me. Is there anyone on here that has had kidney cancer or know anyone that has gone through this?
