Dear reichstall,

In my day 9 years ago they did not have partials. Partials allow you to save kidney function, but they are a more difficult and are a more lenghthly procedure. Those choosing partials should realize this when making their decision.Hopefully they will be able to resolve your problem without further difficulty. The good news is that they only choose partials when the tumor is small so that the likelihood of any recurrance is and should stay at a minimum.

Best wishes,
