i have my 6 mos. ct scan (chest and abdomen) coming up next week. this will be my first since my surgery in dec. 08. i am so nervous about it. i can't stop thinking about it.
i found out i had rcc after something was seen on my left kidney during a routine ultrasound. i was then sent for a ct scan, another ct scan and finally surgery and a radical nephrectomy.
besides the usual reason for being scared i also have some important family milestones coming up and i don't know how to plan for them. son graduating, daughters birthday, son going off to college. i feel like if i make plans something is going to show up on the scan and i'll be right back to square one. i feel really good so there's no reason to worry.
does anybody else go thru this? how do you handle it? am i the only one who feels like my future is shaky. by the way i was stage 1. tumor contained in kidney, all margins clean, no other involvement.
thank you so much for your replies.
good health to us all.
