This past summer I have discovered that I have an unclassified malignant tumour my right kidney. All of the specialists that I have seen seem to be baffled as to exactly what it is. The only thing they know is that it is malignant, but have no other information. Even the way the mass has formed is extremely rare according to the doctors.
I am scheduled to have my open radical nephrectomy in one week and I am becoming increasingly nervous. I already am a rare case ( because of my age and lifestyle) according to all my doctors, so now I am even more worried about complications from the surgery. Can anyone give me any sort of advice about recovery or what to expect for this type of surgery? Any help would be great :)
