I am a new member in here so thought Id introduce myself. My mother of 64 was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer in her right kidney. She had a nephrectomy on the 16th January and is now recovering, up till now all tests for other parts are clear and it hasnt spread. Although the doctors say shes had this for about three years and the tumour was about 10cm and had grown on a vein and artery making the operationa little bit difficult. She is due to see an oncologist 6th March and have a chest and abdomen scan. We havent been told yet the stage or grade of the cancer. Can anybody tell what the next steps maybe. Obviously the oncologist will inform us then, just wonder if theres anybody else out there with about the same experience and how they have recovered. I hope my mother doesnt need chemotherapy, but i dont know what the procedure will be in this case.
thank you, would be nice to hear from any of you.
