I was diagnosed with a small tumor on my right kidney 2 weeks ago while takiing an MRI for my uterine fibroids. Thank God for technology such as MRI's, CAT SCANS, and dye, that can show early detection!!! Early detection is a blessing! I am 32 years old!
Please help: My doctor at UCLA LA said I can either get a partial nep. which would open, OR a full kidney removed with a small incision and less pain, faster recovery, smaller scar.
Please help me in choosing what surgery to get. Has anyone ever had the laser with the small incision? Is it painfull. Has anyone ever had a partial? Is it painful? They don't know if it is cancer or not, they can't tell by the CAT, but don't want to take any chances!!
Please tell me your surgery experiences.
Cancer is a dreadful disease! AND TO ALL... with Love....
I am praying for everyone all over the country with cancer. BUT , Stay positive, find something to do to keep busy!! Don't let the fear of cancer consume you. When I lay in bed to recover from my surgery, I am going to begin writing my book. I am not going to die, or think sad thoughts, or think that every pain or lump is cancer. Stay off the boards that tell dreadful cancer stories!! Pray Always.
