Exactly one week ago at this hour, I was getting in a car with my wife, daughter and sister to head for my DaVinci Surgery. I had a 2.5 cm mass on my left kidney, (found by accident) which turned out to really be close to a 4 cm mass post surgery.
I am wondering now what can I do to get better control. How do I keep this cancer from happening again. I asked my doctor about any preventative measures I can undertake such as diet changes All he said was that I can resume a normal diet. Normal Diet?
I don't smoke, never have. I exercise regularly and can't wait to resume this part of my activity. I am not the best eater, but I need some advise regarding foods to avoid and foods to include, supplements etc. And preparation of foods. Should all vegetables be steamed? Avoid fried foods all together? Someone told me eating shrimps is bad? How much water should I drink? How much is too much. Can I still drink a beer? Wine? Spicy foods, are they good or bad? sushi? Coffee?
So you see I am looking for some direction. If anyone could please recommend a web site, book that is a reliable source for GOOD information I would appreciate it.
How much water should I drink a day? Can I have a beer now and then?
