This network is such a great resource, I'm so glad to have stumbled in. I have been reading the posts and have not run across anyone with two tumors in one kidney. I am being scheduled for an open nephrectomy for my right kidney, which will be done immediately following a removal of my gallbladder. I haven't been dx with "cancer" but the doctor ordered an MRI after reviewing a CT scan and ultrasound so he could rule out abscesses or cysts. Besides having two tumors, each measure 3+cm, I am frightened that co-morbidities will complicate this surgery and I won't wake up, ever again. My most concerning thought is that my Multiple Sclerosis therapy has run my immune system down so far that I am doomed. Anyone here dealt with this, or know someone who has?
This group has been inspiring to read, and I send my best wishes for your success at recovery to best health and happiness.
