A few weeks ago I was in the hospital with Diverticulosis. (Sorry if I misspelled it) While undergoing tests for that, they found my left kidney has a cyst. A common renal cyst is clear like a bubble, my dr explained, but mine is like many bubbles and he feels it is cancerous, but won't know till the kidney is removed.
I've been reading a lot...probably not the wisest thing for me to do...and now, am more concerned. I had hoped that the removal of that kidney would end the problem...but understand that it can return as much as ten years from now.
I lost my Dad to cancer two years ago. I sure don't want my family to go through all that with me too. Are there ever instances where a person gets cancer...and nevvvvvvvver has it again? And does anyone know where I can find a healthy diet for both kidneys and colon? This monday I will have my kidney removed...and part of my colon while I am open. I guess I'm just feeling a bit overwhelmed and don't want to upset my family by talking about it.
