My wife was recently diagnose with Chromophone RCC while she was pregnant. They first induced labor at 34 weeks and then waited a few days to proceed with a radical nephroctomy. The whole ordeal has taken out alot of my wife and myself. The Uriologist said it was Stage 2 with not Mets anywhere and lymph nodes were clean. He said the tumor was 8cm. He also said that the tumor was encased or encapsulated with some type of skin or membrane in the kidney. This has been literally turned my world upside down, but we are fighting. At the moment all is good.
We have a 2 month check up and then a 6 month Scan.
I just looking for advice as to what we should be doing to be more proactive. My life is 29 years old and I'm trying to keep her as long as I can and I have to do my part :)
I have been juicing & blending vegetables w/ fruits. I'm just curious if there is anything else I can do to help with the situation and being that you have done so well, any information would be greatly appreciated. I have read about limiting sodium and protein intake as well.
In terms of treatment, they said none is needed. They said the chest cavity was clear and they also did a ct scan with contrast and did not see any other tumors after the baby was born to see how to proceed. Any information on this whole incident or how to proceed would be greatful for a young father who is scared out of his mind to lose his wife, lover, and best friend.
PS thanks in advance
I have read some great stories here and hopefully I can have something like that happen :)
