Hi just found out about 3 weeks ago I had a mass on my right kidney about 5cm due for surgery on July 16,2010 a little nervous but know everything will be fine. My surgery will be where they move my 11th and 12th rib to remove the kidney. Anyone else have this type of surgery? Would like more info. Thanks

It probably is nothing as the Kidney is back up agaist your ribcage, but this is a question for your Doctor.

In February 2010, I had a 5cm mass removed from my right kidney, removing 40% of the kidney. The surgery was robotic surgery and the recovery was slow for me. I am 60. I am scheduled to have my 6 month CT scan and am very nervous that the cancer may have returned. The doctor was confident he removed it all, the tumor was incased and had not reached the renal artery. No invasion of the lymph nodes. I am asking for your prayers that everything will be ok. Thank you.

In most cases where the doctor is confidant they revoved it all the C-T scan is just going to confirm that. I heard the same thing from my Doctor and in 3 days I will be 8 years post surgery. Of course I was much younger than you being 59 at the time of surgery.

My reference to me being younger than the writer at 59 was to janmoe1 who identified herself as 60 not to lv111. So I was not adding years to the life of lv111. That is for lv111 to do in the future.
