I had a right partial kidney removal using the DiVinci robotic equipment on Jan 20th. It reduced recovery time. My question is-
The margins did not come out clear. The doctor said that he nicked the top of the tumor and then "back out the blade". He said that this caused the path report to come back margins unclear. It sounds to me that he dragged cancer cells back into the kidney.
I'm getting a second opinion from on Oncologist. But has anyone heard of this?
