They found a mass on my kidney, it was small thank the Lord 1x4 and the urologist never mentioned removing the kidney or part of it he said he was going to freeze it. So Sept. 23rd I had it frozen stayed overnight in the hospital went home next day was doing well actually. Two days later I was back in the hospital with high fever 103 and they did a cat scan and it showed fluid around the right kidney and possibly infected, gave me iv antibiotics stayed overnight went home on antibiotics. Was only fever free for a few days, went to see urologist had a bladder infection. Back on antibiotics. 1 week later higher fevers came back almost 104 admitted me to the hospital did another cat scan the fluid was still there and it spread. They did a needle aspiration procedure and could not withdraw any fluid, was told their was a small abcess on my kidney where they froze it. After 6 days I was realesed and my dr referred me to an oncologist and he agreed it was fluid from the freezing and infected and I also had blood in the fluid, why they were not able to aspirate any fluid out I do not know. He said it sometimes can take the body awhile to absorb the fluid. My kidney surgeon only came in once and was telling us he really didn't know what to do so of course he is no longer my urologist. I have been sick and weak since the surgery and just can't seem to get any better. I am having another cat scan Dec 1st. That will be 3 ct's in a month. Chest exray is clear blood work is a mess my creatin levels are double than normal. I can't wait to see this new kidney dr, I hope he can get me to feeling better,the one I had would never return my calls when I was sick. Sorry so long just needed to vent.
