Has anyone had cyrogenic surgery for kidney cancer and survived. Can anyone tell me whether there were any complications.
Cyrogenic surgery (freezing the tumor and causing the Cancer cells to die) was not an option when I had my surgery in 2002. In trying to answer this question I did a little reading and it appears that this procedure is done on smaller tumors in lieu of a laroscopic or regular nepherectomy. That being said it would appear that this group would be mostly if not all diagnosed as stage 1 and therefore nearly all suevive to a normal life span. I guess the concer will be if there is any kind of reoccurance after a number of years. If I am misinterpreting what I am reading please to not hesitate to set me right.
