Hi. I'm 25 and I was diagnosed with a wilms' tumor at the age of 4 through a series of events.
I was hospitalized for a routine appendectomy. My appendix was removed but after recovery I still had severe abdomonial pain.
I was again hospitalized and had an exploritory operation. They discoverd that my intestine had twisted and during the operation it burst.
Apon repair they had accidently discovered a tumor in my right kidney. My Kidney was removed and sent off for testing and I was later diagnosed with a wilms tumor.
I would like to hear from other Wilms' Tumor Surviors. I am interested in their stories.
