I am a 58 year old Australian male. In November 2001 I had an operation to remove my right kidney and the tumor attached to it. In January 2002 I was given the 'all clear' and in May 2002 I was told that the cancer had returned and was now in the venacava vein, near the heart and it was also in some glands at the back of my stomach. I would like to chat with anyone who has had a similar experience about their diagnosis, treatment and attitude towards life after recieving the diagnosis. Thank you. Gerard.
