My mother had surgery on Friday to remove the kidney and mass, and repair the vena cava. Unfortunately, her surgeons said that after removing the mass and viewing the vena cava, if they attempted to remove the blood clot she would probably die. The blood clot/ cancer cells extend from where her right kidney was up to her liver, and is comparable in description to concrete. Is there anyone out there that has or is dealing with this disease?? She is still in ICU, and her spirits are very high... I was just looking for someone who maybe was at a later successful stage.
