After getting thru Breast cancer in 03 and Leukemia in o6 with my wife I thought my family was exempt from cancer. Damm the luck, I am diagnosed with RCC with Metts
I had my rt Kidney removed 12-28 with success and all surrounding tissue came back as normal, again I thought I was clear of this disease.
Soon after the surgery I was in a lot of pain in my rt quadrant and had a very hard time eating,the Docs told me it was the post surgery pain. Finally after an Endoscopy a mass was found in my duodenum that showed to be cancer. Damm this luck. I had discussion with the docs about a Whipple Procedure that would have me in the Hospital for some time, I have decided to put that off for now, because the prognosis I'm hearing now is I have about a year to live. I have began my treatment with Sutent now and await a bone scan soon
If there is anyone else out there that has been down this road and can offer any advice it surely be appreciated
