Well, things didn't go as planned for me. I did have the robotic surgery, but because of some anatomical problems the doctor was forced to take my left kidney. I was discharged Sat morning. Still quite a bit sore. I have 5 openings from the robotic and a good 4 in incision from where the removed the kidney. I'm trying to walk around the house as much as possible. Deep breathing and lots of water. The doctor's office will call tom. to set up an apt. He said from the looks of the tumor it was malignant. Every doctor that came to see me said I was very lucky to have lower back pain that kept me going back to my doctor or this wouldn't have been found. I was told it's almost too late when other symptoms arise. Thank God...It's been the most frightening 2 months of my life. I'm still apprehensive, it's always in the back of my mind. Hopefully these thoughts will pass, and I'll get an attitude like a lot of people I've come to admire for their strenght and positive attitude. It's going to take time I know and I plan on doing everything right according to my doctors orders. Thanks for the prayers, they obviously were heard...
