To one and all that have contributed to these pages over the years I thank you for your time and effort from the bottom of my heart. I am truly overwhelmed and so relieved to have found your discussion board.
Finally I feel that I have found some insight from people who do know exactly how I feel, and that are going through and have gone through the same things I face and feel each and every day.
The openness and honesty that I have discovered in your words, your encouragement to each other and your support has been inspirational and of great comfort.
My list of questions for my doctor and urologist has grown long as you have all helped to educate me in areas that I had not even thought of, and made me understand how naive I actually am about my own procedure and result.
I am a 42 year old female living in Australia. I had a radical nephrectomy July 2010. It has nearly been a year. In all honesty I feel I am only now really starting to process all that has taken place over the last year and beyond. Like many, I feel scared, thankful, happy, sad, hopeful, mad, lucky, confused... everything :-) and sometimes all in one day.
And now I see I am not alone.
Again, thank you all.
